N Range Roof Repairs Finished

The sepia photograph above, from the Woodchester Mansion archive and dating from around 1900, shows Charles Hansom’s north range with its array of chimney stacks and ventilators. Chimneys proliferated in an age when every room had a fireplace, and the north servants’ wing of the Mansion included a large kitchen range and a copper in the laundry, plus another copper in the house brewery. Ventilation shafts were provided to clear damp, smelly air from the game larder, dairy and brewery.

The completed north range roof work and the ironing room from the east, August 2022.
