Heights in the Hall

Sometimes during the winter clean we need a helping hand to reach some of the harder to get to areas, especially in the Great Hall with its vaulted ceiling. For the last couple of weeks we have been up and down the scaffolding with our specially created cleaning tools. While the scaffold is in place we also took the opportunity to stabilise some carved bosses that we can’t usually reach. The picture shows Eveliina Peltola, a specialist in furniture restoration, re-hanging the carvings after their thorough spring clean.
