The newly rennovated Great Chamber at The Charterhouse, London.
The Great Chamber was created as a grand second floor space by Sir Edward North in the mid 16th Century. Queen Elizabeth I stayed at The Charterhouse for five days in 1558 and the early meetings of her Privy Council were almost certainly held in the Great Chamber.
Later The Chaterhouse was bought by Thomas Howard (The Duke of Norfolk) and was also known as Howard House. The Duke of Norfolk redecorated the Great Chamber and installed the chimneypiece, ceiling and north west window bay in the 1570s.
Most of the ceiling was destroyed in a fire in 1941. The part in the window bay is original whereas the rest is a 1950s replica.
