The Fireplace in the Great Parlour, Little Moreton Hall.
The Fireplace in the Great Parlour, Little Moreton Hall.
There is something of a mystery about the elaborate crest above the fireplace. How did this Royalist crest survive the civil war and the period immediately after? Perhaps it was covered up until the restoration of the Monarchy.

Little Moreton Hall is a 15th and 16th-century manor house. The earliest parts of the house were built for Cheshire landowner Sir Richard de Moreton around 1450; the remainder was constructed in various stages until around 1580. The house remained in the ownership of the Moreton family for almost five centuries.

The restored house has been owned by the National Trust since 1938 and is open to the public from March to December. It has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building, and is protected as a Scheduled Monument.
