Frozen in time
The house that stands still
Needs a guardian of course
It always will

Don’t tear it down
She needs to be assured
Don’t let it fall
Let it be restored

(Judith Jackson was one of the owners of Broomfield House, and is believed to be one of the figures depicted in the original Lanscroon murals that adorned the staircase.)
