The Crimson Drawing-Room, Lansdown Tower, 1845. Interior of an architectural folly built for British art collector William Beckford near Bath, Somerset. It was designed by Henry Goodridge. The Crimson Drawing-Room...is a superbly-fitted apartment, with recessed oak roof. The window draperies are of crimson cloth; and the carpet is crimson, quatrefoil pattern. The chairs are of the celebrated Fonthill pattern, ebonized; the seats and backs covered with crimson cloth and silk lace. The centre table is of carved oak; and the large console, triple-arched table, opposite the fireplace, is a very superb item, with rich brocatelli slabs, richly-carved trusses, &c.The Pollard and Riga oak cabinets, on each side of the end window, are very fine; the lower ones having rare jasper slabs. The gold Japan, china, and articles of vertu, in this superb apartment, are exquisite'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Charlecombe Church, near Bath, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Image

Charlecombe Church, near Bath, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Charlecombe Church, near Bath, 1845. The Church of St Mary, at Charlcombe in Somerset, dates from the 12th century. This ancient Christian temple is situated at a short distance from Bath, and is generally termed "the mother of the Bath churches." It has a very low embattled square tower, which projects over the principal gable, and is partly supported by rude corbels; the buttresses, also, are of very primitive form; there is a small, low, entrance doorway. The church is much visited for its antiquity; and in the churchyard is an antique yew-tree, reported to be twelve hundred years old. It is, altogether, a beautifully sequestered "haunt of meditation." From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
