Plans have been announced to install protective glazing in the internationally important east window of the parish church of St Andrew in Dorset.

The window includes examples of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century stained glass from Germany, Switzerland and elsewhere collected by the Revd William Henry Turner (rector 1835–1875), whose recumbent effigy can be seen in the north chapel. Some of the glass is said to have come from St. Gallen, Wettingen, Lucerne and Cologne.

Conservators from Holy Well Glass, based in Wells (Somerset), are currently trialling some of the glass for treatment testing.
