The Bayntun Chapel

The Bayntun Chapel ceiling, Bromham Church.

Funded by EH and the HLF. The wooden painted and gilded Bayntun Chapel ceiling represents a remarkable survival of medieval decoration and craftsmanship and is a fine example of a 15th century decorative scheme funded by a successful and wealthy medieval knight. The main part of the project involved the cleaning and stabilisation of the gilding and polychrome.

Polychrome Wood

Painted timber is found in a variety of situations - from large cathedral ceilings to domestic screens. We have worked on numerous schemes, some executed in oil, others in size-based medium. Projects often involve collaboration with timber conservators and dendrochronologists as well as art historians and archaeologists.
