Fire and wire at Tyntesfield

Victorian fire house at Tyntesfield

Things are different at Tyntesfield in 2018 as we work on a major conservation project to replace the fire alarm system in the house.

What are we doing?

In 2018, we are working on a major conservation project to replace the fire alarm system in the house.

Instead of closing the house during the work, we wanted to keep it open so that you can see behind the scenes and the conservation work we do to look after a house like Tyntesfield.

From January through to November, the house at Tyntesfield will look slightly different as rooms are opened and closed to make way and many of the 60,000 items in Tyntesfield's collection are moved to make way for the work.

This web page will be updated as the project progresses so do check back as the year goes on.
