Description:Pictured is one of the bedrooms at Wootton Lodge. Photographed by Country Life and featured in their magazine in March 1959. The panelling dates from around 1700.

Wootton Lodge was built as a hunting lodge by Sir Richard Fleetwood between about 1580 and 1610. It was badly damaged during the Civil War and much of the interior was restored in about 1700. Sir Oswald Mosley rented Wootton Lodge in the late 1930s. Over the years the building has changed hands several times and when this photograph was taken it was the home of Major Alan Rook.
