LITTLE MORETON HALL

LITTLE MORETON HALL
LITTLE MORETON HALL

One of the most exuberant-looking Tudor timber-framed houses in Britain, Little Moreton Hall is a puzzle of shapes - and a puzzle that its still standing. The weight of the stone-tiled roof and the amazing long gallery has pushed the place out of alignment - it looks almost like the original crooked house. The interior is fairly bare, but fascinating. It includes interesting carvings, plasterwork - and Tudor wall painting, revealed when Georgian panels were stripped away.
