We have over 171 square metres of roof that needs attention to ensure it remains watertight and provides effective protection to the treasures stored within the museum. Our main priority is to ensure that areas of flat roof are provided with new coverings and improved guttering. Total costs for phase one which includes sections covering the Courtney Library Archive are £10,250. Total costs for phase two including sections over our main exhibition areas are £34,745 Total costs for phase three including sections over the popular Egyptian Gallery and Fine Art Gallery are £23,410
