Conservation and Engagement Assistant, Polesden Lacey

Charlotte Burford - Conservation and Engagement Assistant

I’m one of two Conservation and Engagement Assistants in the House Team at Polesden Lacey. My role is really varied, one day I could be cleaning the chandelier in the Saloon and another I could be digging though the archives searching for new information about Mrs Greville and her collection.

I really enjoy sharing our conservation stories with visitors to Polesden Lacey and I'm particularly interested in the conservation of historic libraries. 
I started my career with the National Trust as an intern at Polesden Lacey in 2013. After a year working at the V&A I joined the team full time in 2014. I love to travel and in my spare time I’m often visiting historic cities, country houses or museums.
