Thirteenth-century manor house associated with the family of George Washington, first president of the USA.
Intricate topiary, ornamental flower beds, fruit trees, a wildlife-rich nuttery and a small play area.
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 people, including a hugely supportive Friends organisation.
Travel through time and discover the fascinating past of Washington Old Hall, including its links with an American president and its 20th century challenges.
