Little Moreton Hall is a Tudor house, and it started to be built in 1503 - yes, over 500 years ago!!! Amazing isn't it. The building leans this way and that and has, more than once in its life, been in imminent danger of collapse. Thankfully today steel rods have been inserted and stitched together to hold it all together safely so that we can all visit.
The whole house is surrounded by a moat which is quite an unusual feature.
We visited Little Moreton in September on a very rainy day, but we still had a very interesting visit.
Rather than bore you with lots of details, I am just going to share the photos with you.
This beautiful stained glass window is in the chapel.
A built in dog kennel! How clever is that.
This painted wall is incredible. It reminded us of the walls in the houses in Pompeii or Herculaneum. The painting carries on over the wood in some places.
Isn't it the most amazing building! Little Moreton Hall is a National Trust property, more information can be found here if you are interested.
If you are ever in the area of this property I can thoroughly recommend a visit, especially if you have children as all of the children we saw were having a really great time - so were the adults!
