  • One of Neil’s later photos indicates that this was a bedroom rather than the living room.

  • Whoops – there is clearly some confusion here! The truth is that I am not sure which room is depicted here and in the later photo Bill refers to, whether it is the living room or the bedroom. On the one hand, it looks more like a living room fireplace than a bedroom. The floor is parque-tiled, which also implies a downstairs ‘high status’ room. In addition, I would expect a bedroom fireplace to be smaller, like the ones in the terraced cottage I used to live in at Sutton Bonington. So on reflection I think this fireplace was downstairs, in the living room. I listed it later as in one of the bedrooms because I took the later picture immediately after taking pictures in the bedroom and thought this was probably also taken in the bedroom. Frustratingly, there are no pictures of the bedroom fireplaces that would completely resolve the question. Neil
