Rainwater Goods : Lead

Whilst lead was used on important medieval buildings, the art of lead hoppers and gutters was perfected in the 17th and 18th centuries. Whilst by the late 18th century cast iron was superseding lead, its use was briefly revived in the Queen Anne Movement in the late 19th century and the Arts and Crafts movement in the early 20th century.
