The journey then takes us to Oxburgh Hall, located on the edge of the Norfolk fenlands. Here, two hidden treasures are revealed: a rat’s nest found under floorboards, containing scraps of clothes that could date back centuries, and an overlooked portrait tucked away under the stairs. The portrait, in particular, is an exciting find, as it may offer a glimpse into the hall’s rich historical past.
