THESE medieval masterpieces are on display in York Minster’s Orb.

Visitors can see the stained glass from the Great East Window at close range for the final time.

The five stained glass panels are currently on display in the Orb attraction, which will permanently close at the end of May so York Glaziers Trust can start the epic task of returning the restored glass to the window, starting with 90 panels from the Apocalypse cycle.

Since opening in October 2012, more than 1.4 million visitors have had the chance to view more than 30 different pieces of restored stained glass from the window – the largest single expanse of medieval glass in the country.

Rebecca Thompson, superintendent of works at York Minster, said: “The Orb and exhibitions in the Minster’s East End were created to give visitors a detailed insight into the intricate work taking place behind the scaffolding to conserve the 600-year-old Great East Window for future generations.”
