Tapestries & The Bot Fly Larva

As you may have heard, some of the Castle's tapestries are in Belgium for cleaning and conservation work. The Tapestries arrived safely but caused consternation when a live bot fly larva was found.  Everything was put on hold and the tapestries lost their place in the queue for a bath

They have now been treated and wait in line for November 7th, 8th & 9th when they will be cleaned.

They are expected home on either Monday 14th or Tuesday 15th November and will have their new backs and fixings put in place that week.
