Baddesley Clinton's re-servicing project

Packing for the Baddesley reservice

Over the next two winters we'll be re-servicing the house here at Baddesley Clinton.

The house was last re-serviced when the Trust acquired Baddesley in 1980 and back then, the work was carried out before the house opened to visitors.This covers the re-wiring of the rooms, new fire alarms and some bits of plumbing.

Henry Ferrers’ Bedroom, Blue Bedroom and Lady Chatterton’s Bedroom will be closed during December in preparation for the re-service that begins in January 2016. Lady Chatterton’s will be used as a main storage area and we will be using the other bedrooms to pack up and get ready for the re-service.

The first phase of re-servicing starts in January and will include the Scullery, Housekeeper’s Room, Old Kitchen, Butler’s Pantry, Inner Hall, Henry Ferrers’ Bedroom, Blue Bedroom, Chapel, Sacristy and Lower Landing. All of these areas will be closed from January-May 2016.

The rest of the house will remain open – so you will be able to see the Entrance Hall, Great Hall, Drawing Room, Great Parlour, Library, Coffin Room and Moat Room. The Dining Room will be open as well but will be used as a storage space and you'll be able to see how items are carefully packaged and stored.

The work is likely to cost around £270,000 over this two year re-servicing project. We're able to fund crucial work like this thanks to supporters like you giving through membership, admissions, the restaurant and shop, and donations.

For the duration of the works the entrance price to the house and gardens will be the garden entry price with no additional charge for the house.
