Since 2012, a team of conservators from the Bodleian and the National Trust have worked together to undertake conservation work on all three of the Bodleian’s tapestry maps, plus on a small set of accompanying fragments. The conservation treatment work is now close to completion, and the Sheldon Tapestry Map of Worcestershire (currently on display in Blackwell Hall, Weston Library, since 2014) will soon be rotated with the Sheldon Tapestry Map of Oxfordshire, coinciding with our upcoming major exhibition “Talking Maps” (5 July 2019 - 1 March 2020).
