Michaelmas to Mop Fairs....

Horse racing at Little Moreton Hall

Horse racing at Little Moreton Hall

Michaelmas marked the end of summer and the corn harvest.  It was a busy time when rents were due, debts paid and workers hired.

Visit the hall between 17 - 26 September when visitors can meet our grateful goose, make corn dollies and write with quill pens. 

Once the preparations are over return for our mop fair when you can find out what job you may have been hired for in Tudor times, have a go at hobby horse racing and meet our brick makers and Tudor gentlefolk.  Listen to Tudor music and see displays from the Tudor & Stuart Living History Society as you wander around.

Find out how the hall was built

Admire the views from the long gallery at Little Moreton Hall

Our current exhibition about how the hall was built is in need of a update.

The new displays are nearly ready and will be installed around the hall in September.

We'd love to hear what you think so email us or  fill in a comment card during your visit.

We love our bed!

We're still very exited about our full tester bed which arrived at the hall in November. Read about why it was commissioned and how our visitors can learn about the bed habits of the Tudors!

Where next?

Don't miss a visit to Hare Hill garden. This beautiful hidden gem near Alderley Edge in Cheshire has a peaceful walled garden at its heart. The surrounding woodland garden provides a magical contrast to explore with hare sculptures, bird hide and bee hives.

Our current exhibition tells the story of the two Elizabethan pageants hosted at the hall in 1914 and 1953.

Our fascinating archive of photographs from the 1914 pageant brings this important local event alive.

Running over the summer months.
