Raised from the Solent in 1982, Henry V111’s flagship the Marie Rose has undergone 34 years of conservation.  In the service of Henry V111 for 34 years, she fought in three wars and sank in 1545 while leading an attack on an invading French fleet.

Now that the museum where the ship is housed has undergone a £ 5.4 million re-vamp, this Tudor masterpiece can be viewed from three different angles which had up until now not been possible.  People can view all the compartments and many of her artefacts allowing a real sense of what life was like on board the ship all those centuries ago.

This new enhanced view of the Mary Rose has all been made possible by the commitment and perseverance of those involved in the project and the work will continue tirelessly to preserve the fragile ship for future generations to enjoy our rich cultural heritage first hand.

Sales & Operations Director for Masterframe, Carol Slade says “We greatly admire the conservation of the Mary Rose and find that we have much in common with her dedicated Guardians.  Since the company’s inception in 1988, it has been our mission to conserve and pay homage to the original timber box sash windows lovingly crafted across the centuries.

Over the years we have incorporated every feature possible to ensure that our customers benefit from sash windows that match existing timber windows by design.  We are confident that our Bygone windows will retain the period charm and character of the property in which they are installed by blending seamlessly into their surroundings.”
