This seems like a good excuse to plug the Garden Conservatory page in our new Restoration Archive section, which features a few updates on the restoration works from throughout the 2017 season :P

Towers Loving Care has posted a TLC update...

What a pane!
Guess how many pieces of glass were removed, cleaned and replaced? Around 11,500,  so many in fact that we had to bring in additional glaziers locally from Stoke on Trent and also Wolverhampton who could undertake the specialised work as the glass is all held in with a type of putty - unlike modern windows which are uPVC and silicon. Much of the original glass was actually replaced in the late 1970's and early 80's with only a few pieces from the 19th century remaining. To spot the oldest pieces of glass look for the glass which has a slight distortion to it. Not only was each piece of glass painstakingly removed but also all the wooden surrounds of the windows and the French doors had to be removed and sent to a workshop in Ludlow in Shropshire to be hand cleaned, repaired or replaced, primed and painted ready for re-installation. Even though much of it was damaged you certainly wouldn't know it today! What do you think of the work thats been done?

(Sorry for the double post!)

Another interesting update from TowersStreet, the entrance plaza is having new concrete barriers and bollards installed. I just hope they do something with the concrete blocks as they look absolutely horrible, but obviously they need to take these precautions after all the recent terror attacks in the UK and Europe.
