Barcote Manor
 
was built in 1876 as a hunting lodge for Lady Theodora Guest, a daughter of the Duke of Westminster. In 1881 it was sold to William West, a Director of the Great Western Railway who named a Manor Class locomotive after the house. The West family lived in the house for 70 years, when the house was sold to the Mercantile Bank of India and later become the Barcote School of Coaching.
 
 
Walnut
 
The Walnut woods are probably the most recognisable and popular of all the exotic woods, having been used in furniture making for many centuries. Walnut veneer was highly priced and the cost would reflect the ‘fanciness’ of the veneer – the more decorative, then the more expensive and desirable.
