Title: Blakesley Hall
Title: The Service to School

Welcome to Blakesley Hall, built, in 1590 for Richard Smalbroke, Birmingham merchant and gentleman farmer. The Hall is a timber-framed building, with a 17th century brick kitchen extension.

The house is furnished using an inventory taken in the 17th century and reflects the lifestyle of a wealthy family of the late Tudor and Stuart period of English history.

A Lottery grant was awarded to extend the facilities of this site. Improvements include an interpretative centre, cafe, toilets, coach parking and a refurbished classroom. Onsite security has also been improved. The building opened again to the public in May 2002.
