Growing – The Long Gallery
The idea for this long and narrow room is to have it in a ‘T’ shape, with the longer piece (which isn’t the stick of the ‘T’ but the hat!) running right across the back of the model and the other piece going from approximately the centre to the front.
Am making valiant attempts at building the Long Gallery as though it had existed in mid Tudor period and has had a make-over internally to latest Jacobean styling. So, perhaps the Tudor gallery had a coombed ceiling with exposed beams and with only a small, long area reaching any height. Now, with new fashions coming in, they’ve upgraded part of it to have a flat ceiling, leaving part of the ‘T’ section with coombing. (Link to photo example of on Flickr) Don’t laugh, but that’s the working theory to-date.
