Visit to Pitchford Hall

We are repeating our popular visit to Pitchford Hall to give those of you who missed it another opportunity. Described as Britain’s finest half-timbered house, Pitchford Hall was owned by the Colthurst family for more than 500 years before being sold in 1992. The tour involves considerable walking and stairs.

Price: £22 including tea and cake

After lunch, there will be visits to More Hall, Shipton Hall and Shipton Church.
