Little Moreton Hall

Seeing the tumbling architecture of Little Moreton Hall for the first time, engineers in 1990 could not believe their eyes. Fortunately this timber-framed building, curled around with a scenic moat, has defied logic for over 500 years. Join in with one of the free guided tours and discover the story of Little Moreton Hall from the first foundations (or lack of) to the present day. Find out about life in the 1600s and discover the root of some common words, including, ‘chairman’ and ‘board-game’.
