Little Moreton Hall

Little Moreton Hall is a National Trust property near Congleton. It is one of the most intact and important half timbered manor houses in the country. Constructed around a cobbled courtyard in 1504 the long oak gallery on top of the building has had to be shored up with a special steel frame since it was in danger of collapsing.

The Moreton family lived here for nearly 450 years until the building was gifted to the National Trust in 1938. Surrounded by a moat the house has a small formal hedge garden and lawns. There is a coffee shop and National Trust shop on site.
