Mice sold in the shop

Take part in the Mouse trail

We've been spotting a lot of mice in the Hall lately. Not one, or two, but a few. Can you give us a helping hand and make your way around this big building to locate all of the mice? Pick up a trail sheet and let us know where they're hiding. Good luck.

Objects on the kitchen table

Head to the ground floor and visit the year 1662 

Join us in 1662. William James had just died, an inventory was made of the contents of the Hall. You can see the inventory as well as objects that are listed. It means we have a clear understanding of what life would have been like for the people living in the Hall during this time.
