Little Moreton Hall

 

Little Moreton Hall is one of the National Trust properties I have a soft spot for. Built in in the sixteenth century to show a family’s wealth, it has some wonderfully quirky features.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

By coincidence, a few weeks after the visit to Little Moreton on which we took these photos, we were on holiday in Wales and had a day out in Llanidloes. In a bric-a-brac shop there we saw a Royal Doulton plate, made to commemorate the  visit of Elizabeth I to the Hall in 1589. The plate shows Elizabeth entering the court yard with Sir Francis Drake. The range was made between 1915-1933.

On sale for under a tenner, of course we had to buy it, and it now sits on my dresser!
