Description


"Logically, it should not be standing up!" Over the years, this tumbling, timber-framed Tudor Manor has baffled and delighted engineers, artists and visitors alike, many asking the same question – "how is it still standing?" This guidebook reveals the answer to this and much more. It gives a glimpse into the lives of the Moreton family, who lived and shaped this house over hundreds of years – and who later embarked on an ambitious scheme to restore and conserve the house, work the Trust continues today. You will also discover what it might have been like to live at Little Moreton Hall, from how Tudors might have celebrated special calendar days or made herbal medicines from the plants grown in the garden, to what life was like for early National Trust tenants, the Dales.
