Historic Ironwork in need of conservation

Geoff is a metal conservator with four decades' experience who advises English Heritage on the conservation of historic metalwork. He is the past managing director of Dorothea Restorations Limited, whose workshops draw on the finest standards of conservation of historic metalwork and machinery.
