This is Lotherton’s biggest project in recent times. The silk damask on the walls of the Drawing room had faded and degraded after a hundred years and more. With help from the Friends, it has now been re-woven and re-hung with curtains and blinds made to the original design.
The drawing room re-opened in mid July 2012 and is well worth a visit. Part of the original faded paper has been left to highlight the conservation work that has taken place – it’s fascinating!
