Tapestry Conservation

We have recently embarked on a major project to repair and conserve some of the tapestries in the Castle.

These are important artefacts, many of which are in a poor state of repair and so prompt action is required to preserve them for future generations.

Here are a couple of photos showing work on the tapestries in the Dining Room.

Watch this space and the Buttress for updates.....

Harvest Celebration

In October, the Castle hosted a Festival of Harvest, celebrating all aspects of the harvest.

Here are a couple of photos from that event, showing traditional logging techniques and making linen from flax.
