Visit Aerospace Bristol over the next few days and see conservation in action.
A professional Conservator is currently working to stabilise and conserve the side of the Bristol Tram.
Their work will include:
Cleaning internally to remove dust and debris
Replacing a roof plank and top step
Removing the window’s lower beading and fixing new moulding
Releasing a bowed side plank, creating templates for batten support and re-fixing the bowed plank
Treating external timbers with UV protective oil
Compiling a treatment report on the works undertaken
Aerospace Bristol would like to thanks the Idlewild Trust and the Aurelius Charitable Trust for supporting this vital work.
