The Library

The Library was originally a ‘Withdrawing Room’ from the adjacent Dining Room and unlike many of the rooms in the house wasn’t given oak panelling until 1822.

In the portrait of Sir Charles Bagot by William Owen, Sir Charles is seen wearing the crimson riband and star of the Knight Grand Commander of the Civil Division of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath.

A career diplomat, he was minister to France and to the United States, and Ambassador to St Petersburg and to The Hague, culminating in his appointment as Governor of Canada.

Did you know?
The Topiary is mostly abstract or geometric shapes but look out for the Chess pieces - King and Queen, the Judges Wig, the Howard Lion, the Great Umbrellas, Queen Elizabeth and her Maids of Honour, a Jug of Morocco Ale and four Peacocks.
