As well as the general and on-going work of conserving and caring for the delicate and fragile environment of Southside House, we have a group of ladies from the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) who dedicate Monday mornings to work on recording, cataloguing and conserving a hitherto undiscovered collection of Worth gowns and other items of family clothing. We are extremely grateful for their efforts, and to NADFAS and the Pennington Mellor Munthe Charity Trust for the grants that they have made available to assist with this work.
