THE BREWHOUSE AT BURGHLEY HOUSE, STAMFORD: An Assessment of the Historic Fabric and Surviving Fittings of a Eighteenth-Century Building by 'Capability' Brown

Author(s): David M Robinson, Andy Wittrick

This brewhouse (figs. I and 2), which is currently disused, is proposed as the subject of a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant to convert it for use as an 'educational centre'. Various historic features survive in the interior of the building. There appear to be two options for these features: they might be interpreted and incorporated into the educational scheme, or removed for practical reasons to facilitate the conversion. Advice is required on the development of the building and on the nature of the fittings. Are the fittings of value, and what advice should be given to the Burghley Trust and the local planning authority?
