The Gabled Windows, Little Moreton Hall
The Gabled Windows, Little Moreton Hall
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.

At the junction of the east wing and the great hall there is a large pair of gabled bay windows, over which the carpenter who designed them carved his name with the following inscription:

GOD IS AL IN AL THING: THIS WINDOUS WHIRE MADE BY WILLIAM MORETON IN THE YEARE OF OURE LORDE MDLIX. RICHARD DALE CARPEDER MADE THIES WINDOUS BY THE GRAC OF GOD.

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.
