One of Cheshire’s most iconic buildings is captured on camera
That foremost expert on the buildings of England, Nikolaus Pevsner, was a little rude about the wonky lines of Little Moreton Hall.
He acknowledged it as ‘the most popular of all English black-and-white houses’ but added that ‘as it comes into sight - happily reeling, disorderly, but no offence meant - it seems at first unbelievable, and then a huge joke.’
The top-heavy appearance of the hall and its lack of straight lines does induce a smile, the National Trust’s own guide book describing the 16th century manor house as ‘lifted from a fairy story’.
Fans of the hall may like to know that there will be even more of it to see in 2018, as parts previously off-limits, including the living quarters of staff in the 20th century, will be open from June.
