Reasons for trip

It was several years since my previous visit to Little Moreton Hall, so was pleasantly surprised at how interesting it has become. This is mainly down to the talk given by the costumed guide. This quirky moated Tudor house was built in 1485 near Congleton in Cheshire. What makes the building unique is the fact that the weight of the upper floor long gallery, constructed with heavy gritstone slabs, has caused the lower floors to warp. One of the original pieces of furniture is the long refectory table. It remains there principally because the building has been altered so much that the table is far too large to move out of the door.!

After the guided tour, we were free to walk around the house to admire the timber-framed exterior, the leather wall covering in one of the rooms, the ornamental fireplaces and the extravagant use of glass – most unusual for that period. Outside is the reconstructed Knot garden with its scents of Tudor times.

As a National Trust member and volunteer, I always visit the tearoom and shop. Not only is the food delicious and the goods attractive, but I get a staff discount! However, even if you are not a member, the place is well worth a visit.
