James - Discovery Channel

Knightshayes, Again

I posted a couple of pictures of the house, and some of the gardens yesterday. So here is "indoors". The house was decorated originally by a friend of Pugin (who did the Houses of Parliament). However the owners then thought it was over the top, so covered much of the decorations with plaster, etc. So when the last owners had no family they left the place to The National Trust, who have restored some of the rooms to their original design.
