Adlington Hall, Adlington Hall

Adlington Hall, in Adlington, Cheshire, is an ancient hall dating back to the fifteenth century. The house has been the recipient of many additions over the years, especially after the Civil War and in the eighteenth century. Falling somewhat into disrepair in the twentieth century, the house has since been lovingly restored to its former glory and is now a popular attraction for its architectural and horticultural treasures.

Visitors to the house can enjoy sections of seventeenth-century brickwork, neoclassical porticoes, and some surviving sixteenth-century black and white timberwork inside the courtyard.

Murals of Hector and Andromache and the Fall of Troy are to be found, having been discovered under layers of later paint, and the famous organ is flanked by a portrait of seventeenth-century musical superstar Arabella Hunt and an artist’s impression of Saint Cecilia. The pipe organ itself is a masterpiece of Renaissance craft, unique in the country, and every aspect of the instrument is covered in exquisite detail, from the reeds to the keyboard and cabinet. Then there is the usual accumulation of fine china and furniture.

The house is surrounded by one hundred and sixty acres of park and woodland, including a rose garden and a yew maze where visitors can wander for many pleasant hours.
