During the three-year project prior to its reopening in 2019, master craftspeople from a variety of fields employed cutting edge skills and techniques to peel back its layers of history and meticulously reinstate key interior and architectural elements lost for over a century. The display will focus on three key elements: the specialist interior paint work; the exterior stone-carving; and the innovative use of glass as an architectural tool – all brought to life through imagery, archive materials and objects.

This exhibition is generously supported by a grant from the Historic England Emergency Fund.
