Manor house associated with the family of George Washington, first president of the USA
At the heart of historic Washington village this picturesque stone manor house and its gardens provide a tranquil oasis, reflecting gentry life following the turbulence of the English Civil War.
The building incorporates parts of the original medieval home of George Washington's direct ancestors, and it is from here that the family took their surname of 'Washington'.
Much used and loved by local schools and community groups, including a hugely supportive Friends organisation, the Old Hall is also popular with couples wanting intimate wedding ceremonies and companies organising corporate events.
In a Nutshell open day
Join us and many other conservation organisations on 19 October for a heritage and nature conservation open day. There will be lots of activities and demonstrations throughout the day.
