Highclere Castle

Today the castle is the stunning location for the award winning television drama Downton Abbey.

Highclere Castle stands amid beautiful parkland in the Royal County of Berkshire.

Medusa was commissioned to carry out conservation work to the stucco columns and walls to the main saloon of the castle.

This involved sensitive cleaning and repairs to match the patina of the overall finish of the saloon and was carried out over a five week period, whilst the saloon was still in use.

Medusa co-operated with a national television company, who at the time were compiling a documentary relating to the activities on the estate.

This culminated in the conservation works being included within the documentary which was later to be broadcast on our television screens.
