Site Progress - June
The first buildings have begun to emerge from the ground at the museum site on Windermere. The steel structure for the new conservation workshop was erected last month, although it is still to be clad the building already frames stunning views across the lake as can be seen in the photo above. The new boathouse structure has also begun to take shape spanning the water where boats will later be moored and visitors will see them bobbing on the lake. Groundworks have also continued preparing the site for the café building and learning centre that are next on the list to erect.
Our conservation team have also been busy moving Esperance and Raven across the site to a new location near to the workshop. Lots of preparation went in to moving the two largest boats in the collection and the whole conservation team were involved in planning and positioning the boats. Now they have been moved, conservation work will be able to be started before the museum opens and visitors will be able to see the boats as part of a visit to the museum.
