Firstly may I take this opportunity to welcome you to issue 31 of the Conservation and Heritage Journal. We are beginning to see the Conservation and Heritage world revive hopefully this will continue into Autumn and into 2022. Every week museums, galleries and attractions are re-opening, we are pleased to feature them, included are; Grantham’s Orchid for Heroes, the Garden Museum and St Patrick’s Cathedral.
In this issue we aim to cover a wide range of subjects and skills including, Peter Daniel, Product Innovation Director at The Rooflight Company, explains how, at least with rooflights, you can have the best of both worlds. Rooflights are also featured with Paul Trace from Stella Rooflight offering advice on things to consider when planning your project. Selectaglaze detail working with Mount Anvil, a swimming pool area in a Grade II Listed home that has been restored to its former grandeur.
We are proud to feature 2021 LCA Murdoch and FTMRC Hard Metals Awards, the traditional artisanal roofing and cladding works are inspirational.
Restoration works feature the TEFAF museum restoration where a priceless Manet has been restored. The Monument in Somerset which commemorates the Duke of Wellington following the Battle of Waterloo has been restored after being beset by a legacy of early construction problems. Also featured is the restoration of Grade I listed Royal Pavilion, Brighton by DBR (London) Limited. Whilst Forme UK Design and Architecture Ltd recently completed the extension and redevelopment of 25 Berkeley Square, a Grade II listed building in Mayfair London. In Ireland Saint Patrick’s Cathedral has completed its restoration works.
On our cover and in side we feature a rare 15th century tapestry - the oldest owned by the National Trust returning to display at Montacute House in Somerset after spending four years away for conservation, which comes with a mystery.
The Great Out Doors are covered by by Guy Shrubsole and Sara King of Rewilding Britain who advocate wilder national parks. Also featured is the memorial to the first Duke of Wellington which stands high above the Somerset countryside, now open to the public once more after a complex restoration project.
