Final few jobs are underway this week to the interior of the building – as with everything it always takes a little bit longer than you expect or plan..
We have now hardwax oiled the floor and it looks pretty good.
There are some minor repairs to make to the floor and further work on the skirting board, to be completed by the end of this week. And apart from a few bits of cleaning we are good to go!
We’ve been incredibly busy giving the whole space a spruce up. We love these windows – they let in such a beautiful light and fill the space with a gentle beauty.
Our next step is filling the 3 holes in the floorboards and the gap between the boards and the skirting. Then we will be giving the floor 1-2 final cleans before oiling the boards.
We’re just 4 weeks away from opening now!
The Old Lock Up Gallery is situated within a beautiful stone building, built in the 1700’s, in the beautiful and historic Derbyshire village of Cromford. The building itself is steeped in history – as it was owned by Sir Richard Arkwright and used as the village jail, one of the first of it’s kind in the country.
We are currently renovation the gallery floor, pictured above, and preparing for our opening on the 1st July 2017.
