  Hallway, Hampton Court Castle, Leominster, Herefordshire, England   Hampton Court Castle.

A hallway featuring numerous sporting trophies, wall tapestries, weaponry and suits of armour. The suits of armour are, I understand, a mixture of authentic and Victorian reproductions.

  The Coningsby Hall, Hampton Court Castle, Leominster, Herefordshire, England   Hampton Court Castle.

This hall has been named as the 'Coningsby Hall' after the family who lived here for 300 years but was built in the 19th century.

Again there are some sporting trophies and some suits of armour together with that rather large marble fireplace.

As you may have guessed this is the Library which is somewhat less medieval looking than the previous rooms.

  The secret door, Hampton Court Castle, Leominster, Herefordshire, England   Hampton Court Castle.

This shows the secret door in the Library. There are a number of features that give it away. The door is the panel immediately to the left of the actual corner and there is a small handle at a usable height on the right-hand edge of the panel. Also the books look too well fitted in their shelves leaving no unused space.
