The priority for the mansion and wing is stabilisation and waterproofing. The fire in 1917 and subsequent demolitions have removed almost all the floor and roof structures which previously tied the walls and chimneys together. We have begun to reinstate these missing structures – volume by volume. A number of the chimneys have been stabilised by the reinstatement of the roof structures which have been fitted with a temporary waterproof covering – enabling the structure below to dry out. Reinstatement of floor structures, together with extensive brickwork repair, has stabilised many of the walls. These works have made it possible for the public and specialist groups to be allowed to view parts of the interior.
