CCC Northern - Rufford Old Hall

Postby Trainman » 03 Jun 2012, 13:25

24th June – Rufford Old Hall, nr Ormskirk, Lancashire

Rufford Old Hall, one of National Trust’s properties in the North West, has been home to the Heskeths for 500 years and its Great Hall was once the stage for a young William Shakespeare before he was famous.

Behind the black and white timber frame of its Great Hall lies fantastic furniture, arms, armour and tapestries which sweep through the hall and history springs in to life in the Hesketh's dining room, its food laden table, lit candles and 'fire in the hearth' waiting to welcome the family's dinner guests.

Stroll through Rufford's glorious Victorian and Edwardian gardens - and remember you’re only a few feet (or meters) above sea level - making Rufford one of the lowest lying National Trust gardens in England. At the end of your visit enjoy tea and scones in the tea-room or buy a few plants in the garden shop.

The hall is open from 11.00am to 5.00pm and I suggest we meet up around 1.00pm under the Section sail banner in the car park. Admission price is £6.70 for adults or £3.35 for kids.

Directions:
the address is 200 Liverpool Road, Rufford, near Ormskirk, L40 1 SG and the Hall can be reached from Junction 27 of the M6 on the A59 following signs for Parbold then Rufford.
