WASHINGTON OLD HALL

WASHINGTON OLD HALL
WASHINGTON OLD HALL

Charming 17th century manor house, with an interesting history, and which is also site of the home of George Washington's ancestors until the 13th century. If you're on the trail of the 1st President of the United States, this might be on your list of places to visit - and of course this tiny village gave its name to the capital of the USA 🙂 There's also a pleasant small garden and a nuttery.
