Wormington Grange for the Landmark Trust

After all the Christmas celebrations our work placements have resumed following a short business skills course in Hay-On-Wye. I'm now based at Wormington Grange in the Cotswolds. This is where the Landmark Trust have their carpentry workshop and also store furnishing for all the properties.

So far I've been working on restoring several different frames, each presenting a new challenge.

Replacing a line of beading in Tulipwood for a mirror frame which is heading for Belmont, the Landmark Trust property in Lime Regis.

Not a bad place to work!
