|Again, Neil, beautiful.
What is their worry about cameras inside? Do they think that you will copy it for your home? Maybe it's a security problem and they don't want photos of the system. If it is not that, it is a terrible shame. Is it currently lived in? What was the Great Hall used for originally?

|Dear Nancy, the Great Hall was used for lavish Banquets for the Kings and Queens, Noblemen and the clergy!
After the palace was demolished in the English Civil War, the Great Hall fell into disrepair and end up being used as a barn. Then it started to be restored until they allowed someone to build a 1930s House there and call it a palace. This would not be allowed nowadays but was in the 1930s because the couple were rich!
Hope that answers your question.

|Dear Neil, more happy memories, its a while since we went to Eltham Palace and the gardens were not as nice as they are now, I particularly liked the sea holly and the white lupins, we must go back there one day. carry on the good work, look forward to part II Eileen.
I do hope you enjoy these as much as I have making them.
