In this film, the conservation team are working on a vital conservation project.

Cracks have been identified in some of the thousands of red bricks that make up a chimney here at Hampton Court Palace. To prevent further damage, a team are taking apart the whole chimney brick by brick, cataloging them and making new bricks to repair the damage. 


How you can help

These projects are vital to ensure that the palace is conserved for everyone to continue to enjoy for generations to come. As an independent charity we receive no funding from the Government or the Crown and with a £95 million shortfall in our finances this year, we need your support now more than ever.
