Adlington Hall and Gardens
This hall has been home to the Legh family of Adlington from 1315 to the present day. It is one of the most beautiful country homes in England. Walk around this historic building, which reflects both the history of English architecture and the 700-year-old story of a single family. See how the brown and white half-timbered east wing contrasts superbly with the Georgian south front, which has an impressive stone portico supported by four ionic columns.
In the heart of the house is the Great Hall where you will discover two petrified or fossilised oak trees, which form part of the original building from 1040. They still have their roots in the ground. Standing between the great oak pillars is a large 17th century organ which the famous composer Handel played on.
Discover 17th century follies in the garden and take a stroll through the Laburnum Arch to the traditional rose garden. Afterwards, have some fun and walk around the English yew maze and then enjoy some refreshments in the Tearoom.
