The winter of 2016/17 will be the last one when the house is fully closed to the public at that time of year. Therefore, it's the only time that I will get to photograph what is one of the major annual tasks at Wimpole. The cleaning, dusting and covering up of the contents of each of the public rooms began in the late autumn.
My photography of the work continued in the New Year when staff and volunteers returned from the seasonal break. Hopefully, the images speak for themselves, so I've kept the commentary text to a minimum. I've also added a short caption to each picture to help interpret the scene.
