National Trust Speke Hall

0 reviews


A Tudor half-timbered house with rich interiors and fine gardens. Speke Hall is a wood-framed, Tudor house in Speke, Liverpool, England. Construction of the current building began in 1490, though earlier buildings had been on the site. The house belongs to the National Trust and is open to the public. The house was owned by the Norris family for many generations.

Since the end of the 15th century the building has been gradually renovated and extended. The wood-frame style is typical of the period with the oak frame resting on a base of red sandstone. The main beams of the house are stiffened with smaller timbers and filled with wattle and daub.

The Great Hall was the first part of the house to be built between 1490
