National Trust Open million pound conservation studio at Knole House
The National Trust has opened a new conservation studio in a former Archbishop of Cantebury’s palace in Knole, Kent. The studio will employ a permanent team of specialist conservators to clean, repair and treat objects and will be the first based at a Trust property to open year-round that will demonstrate the expert techniques and cutting-edge technology used to protect the nation’s heritage.
The opening of the studio has been interwoven into a project, supported by a HLF grant of £7.75m, to upgrade, repair and re-present Knole House’s grandest rooms and open domestic spaces that have never been seen before.
