The Great Hall and Minstrels’ Gallery.

Our second National Trust property on consecutive days! This time is was Packwood House, not all that far from Baddesley Clinton.The two properties could hardly be more different. This one has been with the National Trust since the 1940s. The previous owner spent a significant amount of time and money in restoring this property.

The main part of Packwood House dates back to the 16th Century. As with many such stately homes, additions and alterations were made over the years. However, in the 1920s, new owner Graham Baron Ash set about returning the home to something like its Tudor splendour.

This, the Great Hall, though, is not what it seems. Up until the restoration, it was a barn, unconnected to the main house. Baron Ash created this splendid room, along with the connecting long corridor as part of his 1920s work. Many period artifices were recovered from other properties in order to furnish the rooms appropriately.
