Peterborough Cathedral Nave Ceiling Conservation Project

The records created by this project primarily concern the condition and treatment of the structural and painted elements of Peterborough Cathedral nave ceiling and the transept ceilings and including the roofs above. As well as the actual conservation, this included paint analysis, tree-ring dating, digital photogrammetry, historical research, environmental monitoring and other studies.The Archive generated is in 3 main parts. The first part consists of the Phase reports for each of the five phases of work plus the Emergency Treatment in 1997, the report on the Fire Damage following the fire in the Cathedral in 2001 and a further report on the Transept Ceiling. In addition, all the Plates from the reports have been digitally scanned and the graphics are also available in digital format. There is also a set of digital photographs documenting the conservation process, notes from the conservator, Hugh Harrison, some x-ray plates from an early phase of work, a database of the board-by-board survey undertaken plus film footage of the conservation work.

Secondly there are the various specialist reports commissioned for the project, existing in both digital and hard copy formats.

Finally there is the archive of correspondence, meeting minutes and other papers relating to the project set-up and progress, supplied by the project Architect, Julian Limentani. Most of these papers are referenced and a register of the documents is included.

The hard copy archive is held by Northampton Records Office and the archive of the photogrammetric survey is held at the Historic England offices in York.
