Treasures will return to Galling Castle

The Elizabethan panelling, painted freize, and armorial glass from the Great Chamber of Gilling Castle will shortly return to their original home.

The £6.000 for which Ampleforth Abbey, owners of the castle, have been appealing for, with the backing of the York Elizabethan Society, has been raised—the final £2.200 being provided by the Pilgrim Trust.

The panelling and stained glass windows had been bought by Mr. Randolph Hearst for £23,000. and on his death were sold to a London antique dealer. who gave the monks an option to purchase — provided they could raise the money by tomorrow.
