HOUSE AND ESTATE

RESTORATION OF THE HOUSE

Archive Room

This small room, now used to accommodate the Chawton House archive, had its floorboards raised, in order to put in wiring and fireproofing – as did the rest of the house. A hidden cupboard, concealed behind a panel, was discovered in this room, in which a telescope, dated c. 1610, was found.
