Interior: central section has very fine plaster ceiling by Ernest
Gimson. Many original doors (with their latches) and window seats
survive, also panelling and the main stairs. The Arts and Crafts
architects and furniture designers, Ernest Gimsoii and the Barnsley
brothers, Ernest and Sidney, came to Sapperton in c1902 having
already lived for some years in the area at Pinbury and Daneway.
Each man built a house for himself in the village in close
proximity to the others, all of which survive. Of the three,
Ernest Barnsley's is the least altered externally and also contains
a considerable number of original features.
