It’s not the longest article ever, but it does give perhaps one of the first mentions for the Scrubb’s house set (we’ve heard a brief mention of the bedroom set before, but nothing of the rest of the house. I would assume the leadlights for this set would be in the hallway or on the front door probably):
Doug walked through the sets in progress, and, at Sound Stage 5, a crew of builders was working swiftly to assemble a free-standing group of houseless, three-walled rooms. “The first batch of leadlights was for the rather drab and conventional Scrubb House, from which Lucy, Edmund and their cousin Eustace depart for Narnia. Then there would be some much more stylish panels of Narnian leadlight to go into the Royal Stateroom doors onboard the ship.
Though he does also mistakenly refer to one of the fauns on set as “Mr Tumnus” but we can forgive him that one.”

Thanks icarus for the find!
