Amongst other modish alterations at least one room was papered with the latest thing in `flocked' wallpaper, and this delightful room is still in a perfect state of preservation. Neither colour nor surface has suffered from the comings and goings of the centuries.
It is extremely fortunate that the same family has been in possession of this house ever since it was built, for it still retains records and dates of alterations and we can be unquestionably certain of their accuracy.

The room in the illustration is not large and the wallpaper arrangement is particularly interesting in that it was obviously originally included in the scheme of this actual room and not merely used to cover completely the walls, as was later the case. It fits into the spaces where the walls are not panelled between the doors and a oak panelling in the wainscot style. In the small space between the windows where the wallpaper design would not be seen to advantage, wall panelling has been used. What actually happens is that the papered sections are `framed'. A deep cornice runs right round the room and each door has a panel above so that no small space is papered.
