Apprentices are bringing hope to the dying art of stained glass window making.
Research by charity Heritage Crafts has found millwrighting is critically endangered, meaning it is likely to become extinct within the next 25 years.
The job of creating and maintaining the nations beautifully crafted stained glass is now largely carried out by an ageing workforce.
There are less than 50 expert glass painters left in the UK and many of these are now approaching retirement age.
