Here is a photo Stuart of Barn Owl sent last night of the start of a Boatman's style cupboard in Caxton's saloon. This is sited one side of the doorway leading to the bathroom and is balanced on the other side by the solid fuel stove. The nod to a Boatman's cupboard will be more evident when the doors are in place hiding the bottles of mothers ruin to be secreted here.
(Just a point of clarification - it won't all be devoted to gin storage)
