Managing a Masterpiece
The views Constable painted are managed by the National Trust rangers and their teams of volunteers. Alongside them a team of volunteer researchers work on the conservation action plan exploring the history of the landscape.
Managing the views
Annually our Suffolk National Trust conservation volunteers clear mace reed from the scene in Constable's 'The Hay Wain' painting.
The volunteers are trained in traditional hedgelaying techniques in the suffolk style.
