Conservation

The Cathedral's Senior Object Conservator oversees the conservation of the Cathedral's object collections, through assessing the condition and storage needs of the collection and performing remedial conservation and cleaning of objects when necessary. 

Many items are still actively used in the religious life of the Cathedral while others kept in storage have retired from their original usage. Whatever their material, whether metalwork, stone, paper or textiles all of the collections require appropriate care and attention to ensure their long term use and enjoyment. Ongoing Integrated Pest Management (IPM), day to day environmental monitoring and condition assessments for the overall Conservation Management Plan is an integral part of everyday life at the Cathedral.

Examples of Conservation Projects

  • Condition assessment and cleaning of Wren's Great Model
  • Conservation of the Dean's Vestry, Opus Sectile, Crucifixion panel
  • Preparing objects for display 
  • Condition checking loans out
