A 19th-century dairy building was also rethatched and the Harold Stone - a large sandstone plaque marking the high altar at the spot where King Harold was killed - was recarved. Battle ...

How did the coins, some dating to the third or fourth century, wind up half a world away in a medieval Japanese cas...

Sheppard says he tried to capture the atmosphere of the kitchen 100 years ago, while keeping the functionality of a convenient place to cook in. “I think you have to choose the right room for a kitchen,” he says. “So I moved it into the largest room in the house, which is 40ft long. Often it’s in the wrong place, and you have to find a really good room because you will be in there a lot.” Despite pouring years of their lives into the home, Sheppard and Day are moving on. Their next project is Wolterton Hall, a Palladian house set in 500 acres in north Norfolk. Sheppard says he will be doing it up “until I die. This one is for li...
