    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for getting in touch again. You very kindly gave us permission to use the pictures of Major Congreve and of Lady Pepperell-Congreve some time ago.

    is this the one you are referring to?

    Best regards Chris (Vice-Chair)

    I have a painting of Lady Pepperell/Congreve shows the stair landing from before the 1843 fire.
    It includes carved rail details not seen here and stained glass not seen here, specifically a stained glass of the combined coats of arms.

    I can supply photograph of details to researchers.

    Thank you for getting in touch and I apologise for such a tardy response!

    We are gathering, albeit slowly, lots of photographs and loading them onto the website as a record of Aldermaston’s rich history. We don’t have a schedule for this as it is done by volunteers. I would suggest that you pop back occasionally and use the good search capability on the website which will help you find pictures and stories. You could also join our mailing list where we try to let people know what has been loaded, Mailing List registration found under “Contact Us”.

    If you have any photos yourself that you think would add to the story of Aldermaston we’d love to have them on the website.

    Thanks again for getting in touch.
