Blyth Hall: Inside the Roof
Four amazing photographs showing the real Blyth Hall roof. In 1974 a false ceiling was installed in the hall, which no doubt helped with heating, but it hid this roof. Architect Robert Lorimer, designer of the Scottish National War Memorial in Edinburgh Castle, and of our own Newport memorial, described this ceiling as one of the finest pine hammer-beam roofs in Scotland. Recent alterations to the hall in 2019, have slightly raised the false ceiling, but the one above remains hidden. Have a look at this sketch of the hall before the false ceiling was installed.
