Abstract

Conservation and access are integrated within a unique scientifically researched, cutting edge, desiccated storage system for preserving the iron hull of Brunel’s steamship SS Great Britain. As part of the visitor attraction, conservation develops a synergy with the ship that effectively contributes to preservation costs by enhancing visitor experience and numbers. The ethical implications of a desiccation preservation strategy are discussed and the measures taken to mitigate its carbon footprint considered. The cost of conservation to society in energy terms is broached.
