Bischoff House, interior view
25th July 1949. Image shows detail of the staircase and the fanlight over the front door of Bischoff House. A portion of the wooden bannister and the barley sugar bannister rails can be seen. There is carving to the sides of the steps and a plaster cornice over the door. The landing window has inner wooden shutters. Bischoff House, which once stood at the junction of North Street and Hartley Hill, is now demolished. A drawing of the house, which was thought to have been designed by William Etty, appears on the Cossins' map of 1725 when it was occupied by Nathaniel Denison. It was called Sheepscar Hall but later became known as Bischoff House. In the years before demolition, which took place c1968, Bischoff House was the premises of Arthur English Ltd., Electrical Contractors, addressed as number 2 Hartley Hill.
