This project involved the completion of a large programme of repair and enhancement work to the internal and external fabric of Temple Newsam House - a Grade I listed building with parts dating from the 16th Century. It is considered to be perhaps the premier museum in the ownership of Leeds City Council.

With generous support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, this significant project included the repairs of external wall surfaces and stonework, re-roofing and associated lead gutter replacements, restoration of the cupola and the stone balustrades, specialist conservation work to the south portico and internal plasterwork, the careful integration and installation of a passenger lift and the provision of facilities for the disabled within the interior of the building.

Alongside work to the building itself, the immediate surrounding landscape features including the courtyard and historic carriage drive were restored to redress the inappropriate alterations of the 1970's
