Historic treasures in a new light at Oxburgh Hall.

Visitors to Oxburgh Hall can see Mary Queen of Scots’ 400-year-old handiwork in a new light this weekend.

The embroidered “Marian” needlework hangings are also the work of Elizabeth (Bess) Talbot, Countess of Shrewsbury, who was the wife of the warder responsible for Mary’s imprisonment.

Over the winter, the magnificent hangings were temporarily removed from display, but now they can be seen in more detail, literally in a new light, thanks to new technology at the hall.

Elsewhere in the house, the clock has been turned back to the 1870s in the dining room.

Oxburgh Hall is open from 11am to 4pm from Saturday, February 26.
