EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the timeless beauty of Chicksands Priory in Shefford, Bedfordshire. Stepping into Sir Algernon Osborn's study, one is immediately struck by the grandeur and historical significance of this remarkable space. The photograph showcases a breathtaking view from the study to the dining room, offering a glimpse into the past. The medieval vaulting that adorns the ceiling harkens back to the priory's origins as a Gilbertine Priory, adding an air of mystique and enchantment to this already awe-inspiring setting. Photographed in 1893 by Bedford Lemere for Sir Algernon and architect Herbert Hawks, this image perfectly encapsulates their vision for preserving history while embracing Victorian design elements. Chicksands Priory holds a rich heritage that extends beyond its architectural splendor. Acquired by the Crown in 1936, it served as an important location for both RAF and USAF operations until 1995. Today, under private ownership but open to public visits on specific days through appointment with Friends of Chicksands, it stands as a testament to centuries gone by. Bedford Lemere's skillful lens has immortalized this extraordinary place where medieval charm meets Victorian elegance. This print serves not only as a visual delight but also as a reminder of our duty to protect and appreciate our cultural heritage.
