Cleaning Trials at Ripon Cathedral

We have been working at Ripon Cathedral to explore different methods of cleaning the quire.

One of our conservators has been working in the quire at Ripon Cathedral looking at different methods of cleaning the quire.  This project is part of the Restoring Fallen Angels project to preserve medieval carvings,  Amongst other methods, we have worked with Lynton Conservation to look at the use of laser cleaning, and brief video can be seen at our YouTube channel.
