I am not sure if anyone can help but, I am looking for more detailed photographs of Gibson House in egremont. I am trying to re build a case for preservation and English Heritage have given me twenty eight days to appeal. They do not feel it is of architectural merit, but I would tend to disagree looking at the stone work detailing, which seems very simlar to some of the buildings at port sunlight. I am trying to find out whom the architect was, I have the build date does anyone have any pictures of the internal rooms?
The plot of land may be up for Sale again and it has already got planning permission so, this poor building might be doomed.

Give it another month and I am sure it will "accidentally on purpose be burnt to the ground".
