services for heritage organisations

As a practicing conservator Peter has undertaken work for parish churches, cathedrals, English Heritage, the National Trust, the Ministry of Defence, city councils and private clients.

When working with heritage organisations it is usual to find that not only is there a need to undertake the practical measures to a high quality, but also to explain those measures clearly and concisely in illustrated documentation both before and after treatment. Peter utilises his diagnostic and communicative skills in preparing these reports which are valuable not only in the short term for informed decision making, but in the longer term so that future generations know what was done and why.

On larger scale projects generally associated with heritage organisations the work requires more than one pair of hands. In such situations Peter seeks assistance from skilled and competent conservators, some of whom he has worked alongside for more than a decade.

To read more about such projects you may like to look through some of the featured case studies.

Scene from the circa 1300 Passion of Christ, St Andrew's Church, Gussage St Andrew.

'Peter Martindale has undertaken the restoration of the beautiful plasterwork on the walls of the chancel in our local church, St Mary the Virgin in East Knoyle. This interesting and remarkable plasterwork was instigated back in the 1630s by the rector – the Reverend Dr Christopher Wren, father of the famous architect Sir Christopher Wren who was born in East Knoyle. The results of Peter's diligent and painstaking work have proved to be most satisfactory and have surely guaranteed that the chancel walls will remain a major feature of the history of our church and village for many years to come.'
