Bischoff House, interior view
c1948-49. Interior view showing the 'Barley sugar' turned newel post and bannisters of the staircase in Bischoff House. There is carved detail on the underside of the carpeted stairs and wood panelling following the line of the staircase. A cast iron radiator can be seen in the hall, standing on the tiled floor. The open door reveals a flight of back stairs. Bischoff House was originally named Sheepscar Hall and appears on Cossins' map of 1725 as Nathaniel Denison's house. The house, which stood at the junction of North Street and Hartley Hill, is thought to have been designed by William Etty. It was later the home of the Bischoff family but in the years before it was demolished (c1968) it became the premises of Arthur English, Electrical Contractors and was addressed as number 2 Hartley Hill.
