Winter clean

Work doesn’t stop over the winter as the collection and the house get a deep clean and a sort.

The team are busy cleaning and getting ready for next season. Waxing, polishing and dusting, the house is a hive of activity. Winter is the perfect opportunity to closely examine every item for signs of wear, pest activity and to update our records. 

It’s not just the house that has a makeover. The shop and reception will be having a much needed clean and sort out too.

Come and visit us next season to see the results of all the work taking place this winter. The house reopens on Sat 11 March 2017.
