The Cupola Room

The Cupola Room

The Cupola Room is on the upper floor of Heaton Hall in the centre of the building.  The view from the window is south facing and looks out over the park.  It is probably the most important room in the house, being a rare survivor of a short-lived fashion in the 1770s and early 1780s for ‘Etruscan’ style decoration. The room was originally the private sitting room of the Dowager Lady Egerton (Sir Thomas Egerton’s mother).
