News News Staff News We are delighted to announce that Robin James joined us in November 2021 as our new House Officer. Robin has a Masters in Principles of Conservation from UCL and was formerly Historic Property Steward at Aspley House in London. Robin has brought real passion for our heritage and has already made progress at the House in terms of the ongoing sensitive and careful management and conservation of its contents and historic assets. Robin James, " I am excited to be joining the team at WHP and to be part of preserving this special place for the future. It is a rare opportunity to care for a building that feels like nothing has changed for 100 years and has such warm and peaceful atmosphere- and so many amazing stories! I am looking forward to playing a part in sharing WHP with our community and removing it from the Heritage At Risk Register." Caroline Leary has joined us as our Team Administrator.
