ANOTHER set of windows has disappeared from the Holy Trinity Church for restoration.
The removal of the northern rose windows follows months of restorations to the Launceston church.
The set of nine windows, each with 18 panels, has been taken by stained glass restorer Gavin Merrington.
Church warden Grahame Foster said it would be about two months before they returned.
``They're going to Hobart where we will document them, make rubbings of them, dismantle them, clean them with a Ph negative solution and then Gavin will also document the damage, which is extensive,'' he said. Mr Merrington will then rebuild the window from a rubbing.
Mr Foster said ``110 years' worth of happenings'' had taken its toll on the building which will soon be visited by a stonemason.
``The sandstone isn't too badly deteriorated on the outside of the buildings - it's dried out on the outside but remained wet on the inside,'' he said.
``The decay on the inside of the building requires quite a bit of work.''
Mr Foster said there was still plenty of work to be done on the historic church and urged people to donate to its conservation via the state's National Trust.
