War memorials on display

For the second phase of the museum redisplay an area has been set aside for war memorials. Six memorials have been chosen from the collection, 5 of which require conservation due to having been mounted outside for many years and also having been damaged in the 2007 flood.

The memorials have had many different treatments including washing to remove residue and deposits from the flood, wax treatments to renew colours and preserve and polishing.

The memorials are now on display for our visitors enjoyment.
