Under the wallpaper

We have removed the wallpaper in the flat above the pub ready for plastering and found a note from the decorator in 1956 and some very old stencilling! Some of the walls had 7 layers of paper – it was fascinating going though history!

We also found some old wallpaper in the pool room, and when assessed by Northumbria University, it is estimated as being early to mid 19th Century!
