Let there be light
For the first time in two years visitors will be able to stand in the Picture Gallery and look up at the newly conserved and restored Picture Gallery ceiling as the Mansion re-opens on Saturday 7 March. The Picture Gallery has been surrounded by protective external and internal scaffolding since early 2013 as part of the 'Through The Roof Project'. The scaffolding blocked out the natural light, while the new protective secondary roof was being installed. This part of the project has now been completed and the scaffolding removed. Visitors will be able to see 'conservation in action' as work continues on the lower levels of the Picture Gallery this year (prior to the pictures being reinstated in 2016).
