LARGE ANTIQUE LANTERN RESTORTION PROJECT

Lighting Restoration

The splendid antique lantern in the Bracewell Smith Hall at Cliffe Castle in Bradford presented an unusual problem.  It was so vast and was in a poor state of repair, such as to be unable to support its own weight.  It therefore needed support to make it safe to hang. Rich (one of our restorers) welded a box steel frame inside the lantern and the lantern was rewired and restored around its new frame.  It was then successfully reinstalled in Cliffe Castle, Bradford.
