William and Mary-style country house, garden and park
Built in 1701 by Thomas Vernon, a lawyer and whig MP for Worcester, Hanbury Hall is a beautiful country house.
Inside, a mix of interiors await to be discovered, from the restored Hercules rooms and recreated Gothic corridor, to the recently re-decorated smoking room and stunning staircase wall-paintings by Sir James Thornhill which underwent major restoration work in 2010 and look magnificent.
Surrounding the house are eight hectares (20 acres) of recreated early 18th-century gardens and 162 hectares (400 acres) of park. Features include the intricately laid out parterre, fruit garden, grove, orangery, orchard and bowling green. A walk around the park will lead you into the surrounding countryside.
Help save our dining room ceiling
Our dining room ceiling and the Sir James Thornhill paintings are in desperate need of restoration. The 300 year old paintings are in a poor condition and the ceiling which has bowed and cracked needs to be stabilised. We hope to carry out this vital work this winter; however we need to raise £30,000 to help fund this project. Can you help us?
