Bischoff House, interior view
25th July 1949. Image shows the interior details of the hall in Bischoff House. The bannister has turned 'barley sugar' bannister rails and carving on open sides of the wooden staircase. There is wooden panelling on walls. The wallpaper appears to have been stripped, except for a margin following the line of the staircase. The house appears on the Cossins' map of 1725 as 'Nathaniel Denison's' house. It is thought to have been designed by William Etty. Originally it was called Sheepscar Hall before becoming home to the Bischoff family. It stood at the junction of Hartley Hill and North Street before demolition c1968. In the years prior to demolition Bischoff House was the premises of Arthur English Ltd. Electrical Contractors and was addressed as number 2 Hartley Hill.
