The House has been home to many occupants over more than five centuries as a private house, seat of government, hostelry and craftsman’s workshop.
Nowhere is this long and busy history more apparent than in the staircase, with its deeply worn stone steps and shiny stair rope, featured in this photograph by Julia Hasse:
Sunlight flooding the staircase revealed the charming union of stone, iron and rope. By playing with perspective, I wanted to capture the simple beauty of their subtle colours and the harmony of the contrasting textures.
