  • Description

    Cheshire.

    6 lives lost and many irreplaceable art treasures destroyed in fire at Oulton Hall.

    Shaky panning shot around the interior of burnt out room - looks as if it was once a grand hall with ornately patterned walls. M/S of a gang of men operating a water pump parked in the ground of the hall. M/S, looking through a basement window, of the burnt out interior. L/S of the stately home; all the window panes have broken and the roof has collapsed. More shots of the burnt out interior. Panning shot along a row of top floor windows, some still have bits of stained glass in. More shots of the interior.
