Why was Nevill Bamber in the kitchen?

There are two possibilities here. Either Nevill was forced at gunpoint to go down to the kitchen or he ran away from the person with the gun.

So if the person with the gun forced Nevill to go to the kitchen what was the purpose?

If Nevill fled to the kitchen of his own accord, again, what was the purpose?

A. He was hoping to distract the shooter/prevent them from shooting?

B. The kitchen afforded a possible escape route/access to something with which to counter the shooter?

I imagine to get out of the house and raise the alarm. All Bamber had to d was remove the key from the door. Interestingly, the upstairs door leading to a second staircase was locked - this meant Nevill only had one option for escape.

There is no way Bamber would attempt to force Nevill to go downstairs to the kitchen. The 4 upstairs shots were meant to kill.

There is no way Nevill would allow Sheila to march him down to the kitchen.

Nevill fled to the kitchen because a man with a gun was shooting at him.

Did he go down the main staircase, do you think?

The Main Hall staircase was the quickest and most used route.  As Caroline said, the way to the Office staircase S3 was blocked by a jammed door, and the Kitchen staircase S2 was filled with household junk...

Thank you Myster. So if he was running away he ignored the front door straight in front of him and headed for the kitchen?

He may not have, the key may have been removed. It was also bolted so not a lot of time o open it with Bamber close behind.

It does make sense, that Jeremy would take some straightforward measure to ensure nobody comes bolting down the stairs and straight out of the front door in the event of a mishap.

So Nevill would have diverted to the kitchen for a number of reasons. Phone, weapon, back door.

I take there's no evidence to confirm that the key had been removed, or that he was being closely chased.

Do you believe Nevill was shot 4 times upstairs, then was not chased downstairs?

None that he used the phone either.

A witness said he phoned him and the phone's receiver was off the hook.

It maybe worth mentioning that, like many such farmhouses, the front door was mainly for decoration. What I mean is, other than for special occasions, it was never used. It's presence overlooked. In the many farmhouses I've visited, the front doors have bolts at the top and bottom, and frequently an antique, large, and somewhat strange main locking device. These doors are kept locked because they're so rarely used, and, in part, because they take too long to unlock.
