Self acting cottage range at Little Tew Manor

This is the other range that we restored for Lisa Shell Architects at Little Tew Manor.  This basic but beautiful self acting cottage range is in an adjacent room to the main kitchen and would have provided the cooking duties, hot water and warmth for the staff.

It was in a terrible state of repair when we first visited site to make the initial assessment and had obviously seen lots of use over the years.  With careful conservation techniques we were able to bring the range back to presentable order whilst retaining its history.  This range will now be the focal point in a new office but will not be used.
