Little Moreton Hall

Last Friday CJ and I ventured forth into the wilds of Cheshire to visit a National Trust property Little Moreton Hall.  Built in the 1500s almost entirely of wood (the chimneys were Tudor brick!) it has been the subject of extensive care to keep it open to the public.

  1. It much reminds me of the Shelburne Farms that we visit each year...the way that the building is on the outside and hedging and such.

  3. Very grand but imagine the housework! Question: on the greate longe table the bits hanging down at the bottom of the table (can't remember what they are called) do they have a purpose? Would hate to hit my knee against one of them!

  4. It really is a splendid building. As I said on Scriptor's blog, I've been there - back in 1971. I have two postcards of the outside in my photo album. Comparing with your first picture I can see that the trees have grown higher!!! I also have some memories (without photos) of the inside - the impression (or maybe someone said it?) that there isn't a straight angle in the whole building. Anyway looking at your photos I feel like I've been there again! :)

  5. Wow. What a marvelous building!

    I've been foiled in my interclackening by a decrepit router and you've been all over the place! I have a lot of your posts to catch up on!
