Conservation ‘socks’ installed to protect the pillars

Conservation ‘socks’ were installed to protect the pillars of the hypocaust from the elements throughout the winter months.  This is part of our project to conserve and protect what is at risk on the site.  These special ‘socks’ have been kindly sponsored to fundraise towards the project so we can ensure it is finished.  Banners are in place to recognise everyone who has supported the socks this year.  If you would like to sponsor a sock, please visit:

Over the next few weeks, Katie Smith our Community Outreach Officer will be working with local school pupils to create images that will build a montage of pictures on the 20 of the remaining covers to continue our work with the local community.
