Carrow House Conservatory, Norwich

Carrow House Conservatory, Norwich

John Youngs began work on this listed Boulton and Paul Conservatory in August 2009. The conservatory measures some 20 metres by 8 metres and is part of Carrow House in Norwich, itself a listed building on which John Youngs has carried out a previous refurbishment.

Work on this project involved restoring decorative cast iron gratings, repairing a mosaic floor, freeing timber roof windows that were too tight to open and repairing their mechanical hand cranks.

John Youngs' craftsmen have preserved this Victorian conservatory in a continuation of works that have helped protect a historic collection of textiles. The textile collection was closed to visitors for around 2 years, but it is now open again (by appointment). The collection's vast hoard of 25,000 items was frozen during closure to protect it from damage by bugs.
