Writing desk

One of the writing desks which was used by Sir Merton Russell-Cotes. It is believed that Merton worked in the Dining Room so that he could pop over to the Royal Bath Hotel quickly if he was needed.

This may also have been the writing desk used by Prince Henry of Battenberg when he was a guest of Merton’s in 1895.
