I'd love to hear stories of wonder told round those magnificent fireplaces! Ron must have been a very special soul and I hope this beautiful dream space can be preserved and shared. Good luck x x x

This is a part of our local heritage and a cultural treasure every bit as important as a painting bought by an industrialist for their own glory or to assuage their guilt over the conditions of their workers - let alone the heritage of their ill gotten gains. Ron on the other hand made his work from his soul and his heart and his wonderful imagination. Anything I can do to help - just ask!
