Conservation in Action
During March we will be completing the task of returning many items to their former position and preparing for some new displays to mark the start of the First World War. We have just rehung the chandeliers in the Saloon after thoroughly cleaning them. This weekend we will be re-attaching all the crystal drops to them. Can you guess how many there are?
