Snow in the South Barracks!

A visit to the South Barracks revealed the true extent of the terrible condition of the roof at Knole, and how urgent the emergency building repairs that begin this Spring are.  The South Barracks is one of the long galleries in the attics that runs along the top of the Cartoon Gallery, and it has just a few holes in the roof!

A quick look up to the ceiling shows how easy it was for the weather to get in. Through the hole in the plaster ceiling, looking up to the roof we could see quite a bit of daylight!
