      Recently I took Lyndsey and the kids to Blakesley Hall in Birmingham to have a look round the grounds and the house. The Hall date backs to Tudor times and was built around the time of fifteen ninety. The house was originally built for a local man Richard Smallbrooke to use to show of his growing wealth and influence in the local area.

      The Hall is open everyday expect for a Monday so we decided to go on the weekend we got there just after it opens at eleven thirty. As it was very nice day outside we decided to start of by taking a


      stroll around the herb garden and the orchard garden. While walking around the orchards we saw plenty of beautiful birds and butterflies. Kurt our eldest loves to watch the butterflies and he sat there for ages just watching a couple of them fly from flower to flower.

      Once we moved into the inside of the house we saw plenty of interest things such as the four hundred year old wall paintings that adorn the walls in the painted chamber. This wall coverings were amazing to see and were a real eye opener to how things were done four hundred years ago. Both Lyndsey and ...


      • I loved looking at these. As well as old wall covering there is still a long table in the great hall that dates all the way back to when the house was first built and is even listed on the houses originally inventory. There are many other stunning things to take a look at as you go around the house.

        One other thing that stands out are the views from some of the windows they give a glimpse of what Birmingham would have been like all those four hundred years ago with lots of fields and farm land that once would have belonged to

        Smallbrooke and the house.

        We decided to have lunch in the café on site which was pleasant we only had a small lunch nothing major while we fed Josh his bottle.

        Overall I would recommend this piece of Birmingham Heritage as a good place to go and spend a few house seeing what live was like many centuries ago and how things altered through the ages. The house is also a good example of the architecture of the time and is one of the few houses that still remain in the local area that offer such as good look at the type of architecture that was used to build Blakesley Hall.
