Part of looking after archives is making sure that they continue to survive, and that any damage to them is made good.  We have specialist staff who spend their time attending to this intricate work.

Conservation is repairing damage, while preservation is protecting things from risk of damage.

We undertake conservation through paper, parchment and seal repair, bookbinding, and some photographic work.

We preserve documents by packaging them for storage, constructing protective wrappings, removing materials such as staples and sellotape, and monitoring the environmental conditions in our strongrooms.

To find out more about our conservation services, please contact us.

Restoration Service

Do you have old, faded or damaged photographs? We can fix a wide variety of defects with no harm to the original image.

We do this by creating and then editing a digital copy to make your pictures look as good as new. Each photograph is treated on an individual basis and prices start from £14.00 (from 1st April 2019 prices will start £16.00).
