Visit Little Moreton Hall this spring

This spring, visit Cheshire's higgledy-piggledy Tudor manor house and step back into a simpler way of life.

Discover Tudor life with our living history team.  In March we turn our attention to textiles and specifically spinning and preparing linen and wool for weaving.  As cloth and clothing were very expensive in the Tudor period, these were important daily task for the majority of women.  There will be displays of wool and natural dyes and, as we explore the sense of touch during 2020, you will be able to handle samples of the fabrics available to Tudors across all levels of society. 

We will continue to look at how the Tudors experienced emotions and how this relates to  us today.  In Tudor times, repetitive tasks such as working with textiles could allow for periods of reflection and mindfulness as they still do in the modern world.  At weekends try your hands at carding, spinning with a drop spindle and knitting with replica Tudor knitting needles.

As we move from winter into spring, you can also discover how the ‘Hungry Gap’ and the period of Lent would determine what the Moreton household would have been eating.

A visit to the hall

Visit this iconic Tudor manor house that will take your breath away with its wonky angles and quirky character. Built to impress by craftsmen’s hands more than 500 years ago, the hall, with its crooked walls and uneven floors, may seem fragile but it’s a remarkable survivor.
