Is the National Ballroom lettering listed of something!?
Why the hell is it still there?
I was looking at Malton's picture of Charlemont House across the road from it on those facinating 'Malton Trail' signs (I'm not sure he deserves a tourist trail named after him) and there are lanterns atop the obelisks in the forecourt of the house - these should be reinstated.
Also the Nt Ballroom and the house on the other side of the Hugh Lane would appear to have been built as part of the compostion, flanking each side of Charlemont's mansion which is unusual.
