landmarktrust A late 16th-century wall painting was uncovered in the bedroom above the sitting room at Margells during our restoration in the 1970s. It had been painted in a lime and skimmed milk medium with dry colour directly onto the lime and sand plaster of the wall. Over the centuries, this had been covered with a number of layers of lime wash and wallpaper. It's possible that the whole room was decorated this way.

The photo on the left shows traces of the wall painting before restoration; the one on the right is from the present day, with the wall painting partially restored. A ceiling can be seen in the before photo - this was a late alteration to the building and we decided to remove it when we acquired Margells in 1976 to leave the bedrooms open to the roof.
