Conservation of a Mortimer range

This fantastic late 19th c ‘Mortimer’ range manufactured by Hattersley Bros of Rotherham was in a very unstable condition when we first visited sited.  18th c kitchen basement that it was set in had suffered from terrible damp and as a result the iron had degraded significantly.  After careful conservation work carried out by our team it is not stabilized and preserved for future generations.  It also certainly adds some character to this lovely snug of a room!
