Existing montaged with Demolished

We are getting together as much information as we are able, to document the history of the house.
We hope to include information of the Gascoigne family who lived here for many centuries.
As the home of the Late Colonel Frederick Charles Trench Gascoinge and his wife Isabella, earlier occupied by Sir Thomas Gascoingne, and Richard Oliver Gascoigne there is a lot to do!
The overall history is worth recording as many people in the local area were affected by this dynasty of landowners, mine owners and army significants.
The above shot is a montage of the existing remains with the principal sections demolished in the 1950's shown ghosted.
The perspective is not quite correct but it gives an indication.
The principal sections of the house were set back from the elevation of the existing fascia by about 11 metres.
Look at the plan featured in the snippets section to discover the overall layout of the house and its associated buildings.
The property continued to the left of the present gable end. Extending in excess of 120 metres, mostly two storey with a central tower above the stable yard.
