Closed for winter

Book cleaning in the library at Claydon House

Winter is the time when the collection and house gets a good thorough clean and check.

We’re now closed for the winter season, from 6 November 2016 to 11 March 2017.

During the closed season vital conservation work is undertaken which is unable to take place during the open months. This winter the Lantern project and library ceiling survey will be taking place.

Over the winter the wonderful conservation volunteers will help ‘put the house to bed' by covering furniture in dust sheets and small objects in 'paper hats' to protect them against further dust. They will help to give the whole house a deep clean, inventory check all the items and help get the house ready for 2017.
