Behind the scenes: papering the past

We’ve discovered over 150 wallpaper fragments revealing new information about the Palace’s history!

During our restoration process, we recently discovered over 150 wallpaper fragments from above Bishop Sherlock’s room. These include fragments containing stamp duty marks that revealed previously unknown information about the history and use of the wallpaper at the Palace. Join collection and conservation officer Roxane as she shares what we can learn from the fragments, what they tell us about the history of the Palace and more!
