Woburn Abbey, the ancestral home of the Dukes of Bedford, have started populating their Instagram account with interesting details regarding the conservation of the building and historic collection. The historic site is currently undergoing a large-scale restoration project which is expected to last until 2026. Their most recent post details the cleaning and retouching of a portrait of Queen Victoria which usually hangs in the State Bedroom there (pictured).
