Peter Meehan ACR
I trained as a conservator at Cardiff University in the mid 1980's before going to work as an object conservator at the Museum of London. This was followed by a period of time working as a metals conservator at the British Museum where I worked on Asiatic and Ethnographic metalwork. In 1996 I took over as Conservation Manager for the Science Museum at the Large Objects Store at Wroughton airfield near Swindon.
In 2001 I moved into private practice and took up a post at Dorothea Restorations Ltd based in Bristol. I later took on the role of Director looking after pre-contracts and estimating. I left Dorothea in 2011 and set up my own consultancy business advising on the conservation of historic metalwork for all those who have these objects in their care. I became an accredited conservator in 2013 and today work for a broad range of clients that include organisations like the National Trust as well as museums, contractors and those involved in the preservation of historic metals without conservation expertise.
