Hello, my name is Chloe and my blog focuses on winter here at Plas Newydd and my experiences as a conservation intern. Through this blog I am aiming to provide a behind-the-scenes insight into life and work at a National Trust property. Winter is our chance to give the house a deep clean whilst the doors are closed to the public, as well as to work on conservation projects, such as cataloguing our unique military collection and beginning the redisplay of our flood-damaged Saloon. We close on 7th November, but I am starting this blog a little before that to give a sense of some of the things that go in the open season. We also open our doors over the winter for our Christmas events, so I will reporting on those as well. When we close our doors for winter the activity doesn’t stop and I will keep the blogging world up-to-date with the goings-on here at Plas Newydd.
