Another from Beamish Museum. This one from the inside of the ‘Solicitor’s Office. I quite liked the incidental juxtaposition of the inside and outside lamps. I chose to leave it as a colour image as there are some subtle accents that are lost as a black and white picture.
The medieval church has been moved from Eston, Middlesborough. Abandoned, it was taking the worst of treatment by vandals, so was going to be demolished by the local Council. Dismantled, with each stone numbered, it has been carefully rebuilt to fit into the ‘Georgian’ landscape at Beamish. The external work looks complete (many of the stones still carry their individual numbers) and the internal restoration is under way.
