This is one of a series depicting Rempstone Hall, a typical brick Nottinghamshire neo-classical house of 1796 with a colonnade, surviving with cream rendering, arts and crafts gate lodges and Kings Brook, the Nottinghamshire-Leicestershire border.

A cabinet contains bronzes of the Apollo Belvedere, Mercury and Marly horses on Derbyshire alabaster plinths. A Boulle clock and bracket are prominent above the sideboard with Italian marble souvenirs and antique lighting vessels. Five paintings in nineteenth century revival frames adorn the walls above bronze sculptural groups. A glazed cabinet holds a female sculpture above examples of porcelain. Stained glass over-doors and door panels with heraldic devices reflect a fascination with family history. The red close-fitted carpet is balanced the end of the corridor by red curtains and an antler trophy as an over-door ornament at the end of the corridor.
