Historic Hall Restoration 6 - finding original Wallpaper!

Finding some original wallpaper!

A recent project we have been working on is the restoration of Brackenhurst Main Hall in Southwell, Nottinghamshire

After taking the slate roof off Brackenhurst main hall a hole had been discovered which showed that previous alterations had taken place to form a lower ceiling in a section of the old hall. When the lower ceiling had been created, the cornice and wallpaper details with the original ceiling had been forgotten; until now. This came as a very pleasant surprise to us and is one of many perks of the job, discovering the history of a building, uncovering its historical remains and restoring them for the preservation of future generations.
