A project to preserve Althorp for future generations was completed in Summer 2011 and received the East Midlands branch of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors ‘Conservation Project of the Year Award’ in 2012
A special self-supporting scaffolding system covered the house whilst the work was in progress.
With 40,000 man hours amassed by engineers and craftsmen, this colossal project was completed to the highest standards – as befits this Grade I listed building.
“I would be proud if, in my final days, I felt I was handing Althorp on to my heir in a better state than that in which I inherited it. This is a traditional, and not particularly original, aspiration; but it is heart-felt”
