Moving the Harris view...

We’ve been moving lots of our collection to help tell the stories of our women. This week, we moved one of the Harris views from the Great Hall to be part of the full female picture hang in the Great Gallery, and to help us tell the story of Mary Booth.

Preparing the ward...

To tell the story of Penelope, Lady Stamford, we’re transforming the former costume store into one of the smaller wards that was in this room during the time the house was The Stamford Military Hospital. We’ve been getting the room ready for its transformation, moving the costume out and moving the beds in!
