Following Britannia’s departure a heavenly figure has taken her place, in the form of the sculpture from the war memorial at Blackley, near Manchester.
Sculpture conservators Simon Cottle and Lottie Barnden are pictured hard at work cleaning the angel’s wings. The bronze panels from the base of the memorial are also being conserved in the studio.
Their work will be completed in early November and the memorial will be reassembled in time for Remembrance Day.
