Castle Coole Range

The National Trust has acquired an old kitchen range for the basement of Castle Coole in County Fermanagh. It was originally installed in the kitchens of Lincoln Cathedral.

Apparently the stove, six feet in width, matches the mansion's original range very closely. It has been fitted by the same company which removed it from the Cathedral.

The new range will use seasoned wood from the estate so, as a consequence, the very first hot meal can be prepared in the basement since about 1960.
