Harvington Hall

A visit to an Elizabethan manor. To quote:
The Hall is an Elizabethan moated manor house with rare wall paintings and the greatest series of priests' hiding places in the country - it has seven plus a vestment hide - and they are thought to be the work of St Nicholas Owen. When they were constructed Harvington was owned by Humphrey Packington. There is an illustrated online account of the history of the house at the post Harvington Hall from the blog Tudor Stuff, and there are more photographs and information here. (Read more.)
