Blakesley Hall Guidebook

Current price

£3.00

This guidebook is a must have, to help guide you around wonderful rooms and traditional herb gardens at Blakesley Hall, a grade II, Tudor house in Yardley, Birmingham, one of the oldest buildings in Birmingham. Blakesley Hall is one of nine sites looked after by Birmingham Museums Trust.

The hall is a timber-framed farmhouse built in 1590 by Richard Smalbroke, a man of local importance to Yardley. His family farmed at the hall and had other buildings in the surrounding area which were lost over time. In 1899, the hall was acquired by Henry Donne who renovated the dilapidated house before selling it to the Merry family, a local paint and varnish manufacturer, who was the last family to occupy the hall.

Highly recommended for visits and an ideal souvenir, retelling the rich history of beautiful Blakesley Hall.

The guide contains 24 pages and measures 21x20.9x0.3 cm.
