A NATIONAL Trust property was featured on television highlighting the conservation work being done. 

As part of the ongoing conservation work at Croome, near Pershore, the spectacular Long Gallery is the latest part of the house being repaired.

“We were very happy to host ITV at Croome, showcasing the important ongoing conservation work being undertaken,” said Will Watson, Croome’s House Steward. “We are always keen for visitors to see any conservation work being done, and show the challenges we face when caring for our historic houses.”

The team from Cliveden Conservation, who completed the cleaning and repair of two Robert Adam chimney pieces last year, were filmed and are now focusing on the plaster in the bay of the Long Gallery. 

A section was taken down in 2011 so the underlying issues could be fixed and work has now begun to reinforce it.

Visitors will be able to see the conservation work as it continues over the next few weeks.
