Preparations for building the conservation shelter & education building in full swing!

The excavation and conservation of the mosaics in the west range corridor, room 5b, room 6 corridor and rooms 7 & 8 has now come to a close.  These splendid mosaics have been a spectacle for all who have visited Chedworth over the summer, with a fantastic team of volunteers and National Trust staff on hand to undertake the hard work required to reveal them.

The next phase of the project is to protect these mosaics and the other mosaics across the west range to ensure they are safe during the building works, which begins in November.  A team of conservators and contractors will be ensuring suitable protection is in place over the next few weeks.  Other preparations will also be taking place to get the site ready for the building works in 2012.

A huge thanks to all those who volunteered and all the National Trust staff who have undertaken, often backbreaking work in less than tropical conditions to reveal these wonderful treasures.
