The Study


This room has been restored as originally designed with simple whitewashed walls and a red frieze below the ceiling, at the juncture of the walls and as skirting. There is also a conserved overmantel design of scrolls within a frame. The door is original as are most of the oak floorboards. The initial function of the room is not known but at present has been designated as the study of Thomas Bayly containing a "cabinet of curiosities", ie. exotic shells and the like, which he would have shown off to his friends.
