On Tuesday morning we put up scaffolding in the Drawing Room. We would prefer to do this kind of work during the winter while the house is closed, but unfortunately the marble fireplace we are so well-known for is suffering from damp issues.

 It’s been an ongoing problem for a several years, which seems to recently have deteriorated further in a short space of time. The rig went up to allow conservators to assess the damage, and depending on their recommendations it may go up again in the near future to allow necessary work to be carried out.
