There is a bust of Francis Bacon in the Stairway. The younger half-brother of the 12th Earl was Sidney Herbert, Secretary of War during the mid nineteenth century and the supporter of Florence Nightingale. He occupied the House since his brother lived abroad and so there is some Nightingale memorabilia here, including a nice bust and a sash (of the type?) she wore at Scutari.
