Sutton House

 Linenfold paneling and the painted 'temporary' linenfold paintings underneath
 Tudor wall painting-still there!

 lovely 16th century fireplace
 small parlor
 great chamber's fireplace
 by far my favorite bit of this house was the hinged wall paneling that you could pull to expose the Tudor brickwork and arches
 Victorian staircase and Tudor timbering
 burn marks on a 16th century lintel from candles!
 "mysterious figure" carved above a fireplace believed to be holding a grid iron (used to cook meat and as an instrument of torture) Perhaps a good luck charm to ward off the devil who tried to come into houses through unlit chimneys.
 most awesome embroidered gloves
Tudor kitchen (original fireplace mantel)
