Conservation in Action at Snowshill Manor
A lot of work goes into conserving somewhere as special as Snowshill Manor and we're sharing a behind the scenes look at this with you this summer.
Cared for by conservation charity the National Trust, Snowshill Manor relies on staff and volunteers to care for the house and its collection.
"People are often interested to learn how we do this," said Assistant House Steward Harriet Groves. "So we thought it would be a good idea to shine a light on this. From cleaning the collection to protecting it from bugs, conservation involves so many different elements."
Conservation in Action week will see a series of sessions and events where people can learn more about how the team protects, stores and revives items which would otherwise be in danger of being lost forever.
