It’s been a turbulent couple of weeks but on Saturday (10th March) everything in the house was ready to welcome visitors for our first day of the 2012 season!
The Brown Gallery and the Leicester Gallery were the last two rooms to uncover and reinstate. We had left them until the building work was completed in this area.
The best part of the week before we open is winding the clocks and bringing them back to life. We have 4 clocks we wind weekly, and 1 lantern clock we have to wind every day.
