    Enormous Elizabethan house.
    I know you are surprised.
    Built by a wool merchant and lawyer who was also an MP and a judge. We are sure he wasn’t status conscious.
    Was involved in the trials of Sir Walter Raleigh and the Guy Fawkes plotters. Knighted for his efforts.
    Very good guide around the property and a lot of the place makes more sense.
    150 years after the place was built the local road had changed so they bought the front from a local manor and stuck on the back to create a new front door!!!!

    Very stately. Must have had lots of guests otherwise-the rooms would never be aired.
