An evaluation of building debris, by R Poulton of SCAU for P&O Developments, following a fire at the 18th century mansion (listed grade II*). The ground floor rooms are intended to be returned to their original appearance as far as possible. The evaluation of the front hall demonstrated that the ceiling plaster survived as a layer immediately over the floor. Some survived in relatively good condition, including substantial pieces of decorated work, which suggested restoration of the ceilings would be possible. Further work was subsequently carried out by Wessex Archaeology.
