Hardwick Hall

Flooring, Plaiting, Sewing

Last week we fitted the rush matting in the High Great Chamber at Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire a National Trust property. 3 of us spent 4 very cold days scrunched up on an extremely early form of lime ash floor. The room measures 20m x 10m and is lined in the most amazing tapestries. The freize at the top of the wall has now faded but would have been vivid in colour. Now the matting is laid the whole room is beautiful. Well worth a visit!! www.nationaltrust.org.uk/hardwick
