The first pieces of the Georgian Coaching Inn

Last week we collected some exciting objects – which we intend to incorporate into our, as yet un-designed, Georgian Coaching Inn.

This lovely oak paneling and accompanying window frames were bought at auction.

The paneling dates from the 17th Century, and allegedly originate at Beamish Hall – a nice coincidence we weren’t aware of until we collected it!

The paneling will be careful restored by Shaun and his team, and eventually we’ll create a spot to incorporate it into the Coaching Inn.

On the same journey we also collected a few much more modern objects – some 1950s fire surrounds and metal frame windows. They’ll eventually find their way into some of our 20th Century buildings.

David and Daryl from the collections team help to unload the metal frame windows.

It just goes to shows the variety of buildings we’re working on!
