How Marble Hill Was Revived: The secrets behind the paintwork with Rachel Turnbull

As part of the Marble Hill revived project a huge amount of paint research and conservation work has been employed to not only safeguard the collection but also restore the house back to that of its former glory.

As part of the ‘How Marble Hill was Revived' Autumn Lecture series, hear from Rachel Turnbull, Senior Collections Conservator for Fine Arts about the research, delivery and unusual finds that she unearthed behind the many layers of paint.

How Marble Hill Was Revived: Landscape-from concept to delivery

From concept to delivery a huge transformation has taken place on the 66 acres, from the development of wildflower meadows, to the reinstatement of the former 9 pin bowling alley.

Take a look behind the scenes of the initial concepts to the clearance, the impact of the pandemic to opening. We take a ride on the highs and lows of the project that saw the creation of a vibrant 66 acres public park that marries conservation with heritage.

How Marble Hill Was Revived: Interpretation and Illustration by Lauryn Etheridge and Jill Calder

Marble Hill has undergone a huge transformation in both the landscape and the house, but understanding how we should tell the stories of our past is important and integral to the English Heritage team.

Project lead for the Marble Hill Interpretation team, Lauryn Etheridge, talks about the Marble Hill interpretation scheme and how by working with professional illustrators like Jill Calder, who created the depiction of Henrietta and the Twickenham set in both the landscape and house scheme, can help tell England's history.

How Marble Hill Was Revived: Community at the heart with Rachel Morrison

The Marble Hill Revived project was built with community at its heart to share the stories of the creator of Marble Hill and to explore the relevance of England’s history today.

Hear from former Audience Development Manager Rachel Morrison about the delivery of the project, the highs and lows of connecting with an ever changing events programme due to a global pandemic and the people that played an integral part.
