Great Chamber



The Great Chamber hosts todays wedding. The profusion of windows contains more heraldic glass commemorating the owners of Athelhampton and their alliances. The plaster ceiling is in the Reindeer Inn pattern from Banbury Oxfordshire. This was one of the Cart de Lafontaine’s additions to this room which had earlier been used as a granary. The finely figured oak panelling on the walls is of the 17thC with Elizabethan carved panels over the fireplace in the Italian manner. Concealed in the thickness of the west wall is a staircase leading up to the floor above and down to a small cellar.
