Kings Bromley Historians

April’s meeting took the form of an outing to Tissington Hall. After meeting up for coffee we proceeded to the Hall where Sir Richard welcomed us and told a little of himself and the Fitzherberts, before handing over to our guides.

A quick tour of the garden (due to rain), then into the Hall for an extensive tour with Mandy and Paul, our guides, who were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The first Hall was built across the road beside the church where the earthworks are still visible. By the 1500s the stables and the initial part of the Hall were built. This has been extended over the years to blend in seamlessly to the Hall we see today.

The walk around the village was mostly abandoned, making the pub a better option, where we enjoyed a good lunch. A great day out!

Our next meeting will be to discuss our plans for the 100th Kings Bromley Show and our June meeting will be a talk and demo on Tudor Music in the Village Hall at 8.00 pm. All are welcome.
