Brings to mind the Monty Python skit in The Holy Grail, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Knights of the round table who met an untimely end?
Ruined, but still presentable Tom!
Tom Wilson: It's a very fine piece of work, I think.
From a day and time hard to relate to, Tom, which makes it all the more impressive.
Tom Wilson: I wonder how many trees they got through in a winter?

Still grand though isn't it Tom
Tom Wilson: It is indeed!
Great definition in this photograph Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Chad - all down to a bit of tweaking in Lightroom smile
Well worth the effort preserving this, It must have been quite some fireplace
Tom Wilson: Quite lovely, I think.
Seems their arms got in the way.
Tom Wilson: Presumably knocked off when the ceiling and then the roof fell in.
It must have looked magnificent before the fire.
Tom Wilson: Indeed - I would like to know what those figures looked like originally.
You can imagine how splendid it once was and my be again one day
Tom Wilson: I hope the NT can afford to continue the restoration - I think this is one ruin well worth working on.
Looks like a party that got out of hand...
Tom Wilson: I don't know what caused the fire - possibly an electrical fault somewhere
This is still very impressive Tom... i can just imagine what it was like when it was built....petersmile
