Rosie Butler-Hall who is studying an MA in Conservation of Cultural Heritage at the University of Lincoln has been carrying out some research into Mrs Smith’s Cottage and has been over to take some environmental readings at the cottage.
The readings will be monitoring the relative humidity and temperature in the cottage over a period over several weeks and will be included in Rosie’s building survey report for her course. She will be sharing her findings with us and it will be interesting to see how these results compare to ones we previously had taken at the cottage.
We are really pleased to be working with the University of Lincoln and the cottage is proving to be of great interest to the University and to the students learning. We are grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for their support and we thank the National Lottery Players for buying their tickets which in turn helps support such amazing projects across the country.
