This property is NOT free for HHA Friends
Grouped with Saxon church, Georgian stables and old walled garden, this is an exquisite Elizabethan manor house with rococo interiors added by Thomas Pritchard, the builder of the famous Iron Bridge.
Shipton Hall was built around 1587 by Richard Lutwyche to replace a much older black & white timbered house which was destroyed by fire earlier in the 16th century. The house has been described as \"an exquisite specimen of Elizabethan architecture set in a quaint old fashioned garden, the whole forming a picture which, as regards both form and colour, satisfies the artistic sense of even the most fastidious\". Inside the house there is an interesting combination of elegant Georgian roccoco decor with some beautiful Tudor panelling and timberwork.
Features: Walled and ornamental gardens; earlier monastic dovecote.
