Country House Rescue

Front view of Bantry House in County Cork

Head of Conservation, Yvette Fletcher, was invited to Bantry House in Co Cork, SW Ireland by Betty TV to take part in filming for a new series of Country House Rescue.

The family, who own the house, showed Yvette all the gilt leather in the house which she examined in order to prepare a conservation treatment proposal. Then Yvette and the family took part in filming the episode, with Yvette talking to the daughter, Sophie, about the origins of the leather and possible conservation treatments.

The house overlooks Bantry Bay with stunning views and the gilt leather has been applied to the sides of the staircases and on the doors.
