Castle restoration

Castles and similar landmarks across Great Britain may face a multitude of challenges when it comes to the care of their diverse collections. Whether the damage is caused by age, atmosphere, accident or disaster, highly trained conservators can step in to save important contents. Previous clients include Powderham Castle, Dalcross Castle and Armathwaite Hall.

Our team at Fine Art Restoration Company has a unique, multifaceted approach to conservation – allowing us to assist with everything from safe transport and storage to professional assessment and skilled restoration. As well as many high profile private clients, we have played a key role in preserving artworks and items of cultural value to the public. This includes projects completed for the American embassy in London, The Church of England, and restoration work funded by the Historic Houses Foundation. 

Recent projects include the restoration of an 18th century Robert Adam ceiling for Crockfords Casino in Mayfair, the rescue of a Victorian mural at Westonbirt House following an escape of water, funding application followed by oil painting conservation for Iscoyd Park and disaster response for a flooded 12th century parish church in Monmouth, Wales.

You don’t really own old family paintings, you are merely a custodian, so having them restored can be a nerve-racking experience. That why I went with an expert team I could trust to restore a painting that is very dear to my heart. The restoration is superb and my family will continue to enjoy the results for generations to come.

I really appreciate the restoration and framing and framing you did for me. The result is very pleasing and I am sure that it will look terrific in the Royal Dragoon Guards Museum in York.
