Closer To Home - The Restoration of Leighton House Museum

Synopsis

From October 2008 - April 2010, Leighton House Museum closed for extensive restoration and refurbishment. This was an important moment in the history of the house, reinstating the historic interiors to as close as they would have appeared before Frederic Lord Leighton's death in 1896.

The film-maker and photographer Frederique Cifuentes Morgan was commissioned to record the project from beginning to end. This film tells the story of this significant project and celebrates the work of the outstanding craft specialists who brought the work to completion.
