Immediately after the fire, showing the library windows. You can see right through the top windows to the sky showing the whole of the interior was destroyed. You can see the stone window surrounds are badly damaged and we believe this was when they were replaced with bath stone (which being a more yellow colour is not in keeping with the rest of the house which is Totternhoe stone). The stone facing on the whole of this wall was replaced in 2001 with new Totternhoe Stone. You can just see the stone pot between the windows. This survived until the early 2000s when it, and the corresponding one on the other side, was stolen. The gallery was not affected by the fire, but was demolished in the 1950s. We restored it in the 1990’s and this photo was used to ensure the recreation of the new stone window surrounds and balustrade were accurate.
