Clandon House Assets Conservation

Client: National Trust
The focus of the conservation project was to stabilise and consolidate a number of fixed and portable kitchen assets.
The kitchen assets were in need of a sensitive but comprehensive care treatment plan ahead of being boxed-in or removed as part of a long-term protection strategy required to provide collection care during a planned future kitchen reconstruction and refurbishment phase.

Although Clandon House experienced a devastating fire a significant number of fixed and portable cultural heritage assets survived. 

A number of these larger and more robust assets were fire baskets, grates and decorative surrounds with many surviving in their original locations.

Although many of the smaller and easily portable items were removed for offsite conservation a number were required to be treated in-situ because they were built into the original fabric of the house.

Consolidate, stabilise and conserve

We provided National Trust with a pragmatic conservation method statement and technical specification to carry out onsite conservation works to consolidate, stabilise and conserve these objects to provide long-term protection.

Onsite conservation


The physical practical conservation techniques and methodologies for this project needed to be primarily robust and out importantly fit for purpose.  

The techniques must also remain flexible and have the ability to be reversed and refined or enhanced as defined by a potential change in a display environment, exhibition or operation.
