The first image is of jambless as I exposed the brick infill showing the deteriorated fire box . The next image is of the fireplace with the brick infill removed leaving real early jambs that were added to the smokey jambless. Also the 18th century cupboard was removed because of evidence of being from another location in the house. the third image is of what remained of the original valance hood which surrounded the jambless opening. To the left of the fireplace once the cupboard was removed we notice a vertical crack in the plaster. This mysterious crack drew my attention to observe with a flashlight. Looking inside the crack I noticed wood inside. Indeed this was a closed up window. Check my next blog to see what develops from my investigation.
