Chocolate Court stair, Hampton Court Palace

I absolutely love that Hampton Court has a special kitchen for making hot chocolate, and a sweet staircase next door!
This stair is packed into a tight space with winders used instead of quarter landings.


Again, the treads have a chuncky ogee profile.

Where the flight passes a window the treads are supported by an arch.

It is interesting to see how the winders in an ogee flight are dealt with.

The method for getting supplies up the staircase…
