Ever wandered around centuries old houses and marvelled at how the antiques and furniture remain in pristine condition? Spick and sparkling clean, these evocative houses are often home to some of the best cared objects in history, free from the dust and marks of time that mar many of our own collectables that lurk at the back of the cupboard. So, what’s the secret of these grand homes?
Now Beningbrough Hall is giving a masterclass that will teach you all the ins and outs of looking after and maintaining history’s top artefacts. Alongside the more technical aspects of such an occupation, the experts will also reveal the real power many of us have known all along, of good old spit and elbow grease.
