The ceiling in this room had been removed in 1790 to make it as high as the Great Hall. Clive Pearson replaced it in 1935 to re-create the Great Chamber above, and commissioned Esmond Burton to do the intricate plasterwork by hand.
The 17th century needlework fills this room with colour. A picture of Charles I’s great warship “The Sovereign of the Seas” hangs over the fireplace, with portraits of Charles I by Mytens, Susan Villiers by William Larkin and Elizabeth of Bohemia by Paul van Somer.
