The Driveway To Speke Hall
Speke Hall is a wood-framed wattle-and-daub Tudor manor house on the banks of the River Mersey. The first part (The Great Hall) was built in 1530 and it was completed in 1598 when the North Range was added. The hall suffered years of neglect and decay in the 18th century (including a spell when it was used as a cow shed) but was restored and brought back into use in the Victorian period.

Since 1942, the house has been owned by the National Trust and it is open to the public. It is a Grade I listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 359547 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings)
