Conservation on a grand scale 

As part of our work at the Guildhall, we inspect the outside of the building as well as the collection inside. Everything is regularly looked at, inside and out by our building surveyors and conservators. We check for insect and pest damage, wood, brick and plaster deterioration and of course wear and tear in the exhibits themselves.
