Conserving our past, securing our future

Heritage Volunteers are looking forward to working at Holkham Hall this autumn on a new project.  A very large tapestry has been water damaged and requires restorative work after specialist cleaning in Belgium.  The work will be carried out in cooperation with the National Trust and it is likely to be a long term project, as the tapestry is so big.

Activity at Oxborough Hall is unlikely over the winter months as there is major work taking place on the roof, which will prevent access to the Library.  However, volunteers are expecting to return to the Wisbech Museum, where they are working with specialists from the Fitzwilliam Museum on the cataloguing, measurement and cleaning of the extensive china collection.
