Rufford Old Hall & Barton Grange

After we are all aboard the coach we will be heading for Barton Grange nestled in the Lancashire countryside. Spend a few hours moseying around the fantastic plant and gift displays, or enjoy an early lunch at one of the fantastic restaurants.

 

We will leave Barton Grange at 12 noon to travel to Rufford Old Hall. Now a National Trust property, built in 1530 by Sir Robert Hesketh, only the timber framed Grand Hall survives of the original structure. The Tudor building is the home of almost 500 years of intriguing history, interesting artefacts and extensive collections including the armour display.

Take time to observe the fine Tudor decoration of the hall, with its carved hammer-beam hall roof, a rare moveable hall screen with traceried panels and drawing room with its 16th century arched-brace roof timbers.

 

Once you have discovered inside the hall, take some time to explore Rufford’s Victorian and Edwardian gardens, only a few metres above sea level it is one of the lowest lying National Trust gardens in England.

 

To finish the day we will enjoy some light refreshments in the Victorian Tearoom before boarding the coach for our journey home.
