Buckinghamshire New University students spent four days restoring and conservation cleaning a chandelier which has hung over the main staircase of Halton House since the late-19th century. The impressive structure, weighing around half a ton dates back to 1884.
The work was co-ordinated with the Halton House Heritage Committee, a charitable organisation that instigates small projects dedicated to preserving the upkeep of Halton House. The chair of the committee is Sqn Ldr Karen Swanston. Karen said “It’s fantastic that the Heritage Committee has been able to work with staff and students from Buckinghamshire New University to achieve the successful completion of this project. We look forward to continuing this association in the future.”
