The Crypt

This open gallery in gothic style, individual and hard to build with load bearing arches is modelled on the Fountain Abbey of Malton in Yorkshire where Lord Grimthorpe originally came from. Although it evokes a medieval atmosphere, it was built between 1907 and 1911 and became one of the meeting places of the London’s Bloomsbury Group*
