Trip out to Little Moreton Hall
On one of my many random travels I came to Little Moreton Hall just outside Congleton and having been past a few times, I was curious what it was cause all you can is an old house that looks amazing.
It turns out to be a National Trust property which is around 500 years old and from afar you can see it’s not quite standing straight but only when you get closer you see how it’s really not and wonder how it’s not fallen down yet. Somehow the the timber-framed building, curled around with a scenic moat, has defied logic for over 500 years!
Better in person but top floor, not even close to straight!
While going round you get more of the history which I won’t spoil here but it gives you an understanding how the house stood for so long and as your going round you get to see alot of the structure and wonderful architect that went into the budiling such as the fireplaces and despite leaning to one side still look fantastic and must’ve taken years to make!
At the very top of the old library and once again shows the history and brilliant designs that was created so long ago and along with the stain glass windows you can’t help but wonder what life was like back then. Just outside and surrounding the house are the gardens which have been kept beautifully by the National Trust staff and while I’m not one for flowers and such, you can’t help but appreciate how nice it looks and the peace and quiet, giving you time to take 5 with the flock of ducks that came over to say hi.
