The interior Wisbech Castle provides an insight into the eccentricty of it's builder Joseph Medworth, with a number of odd features and really quite crude joinery. It is difficult to imagine how the house 'worked' as a home with principal reception rooms on the middle floor accessed by a flight of steps from the front of the building. The lower floor comprised 'domestic offices' together with a further reception room at garden level.
Bedrooms occupied the top floor, there are currently 6 rooms upstairs, how they were originally arranged is diffiicult to establish due to later unsympathetic conversions to provide a flat for the curator in the late 1960's.
Medworth may have lived here alone, it is not known whether his housekeepers 'lived in' or whether he had other servants. He did provide them with houses in the Crescent. He may even have used the present Medworth Room as a bedroom, although it is more likely to have been a formal dining room
At this time an internal fire escape was added and the original balcony at the front of the building was enclosed and inappropriately rendered.
The present decorations are based on those undertaken in 1999, when the BBC took over the property for the filming of David Copperfield, they repainted in the style of the 1820's and these colours have been retained.
