A local stately home is opening on selected dates this year. Morville Hall near Bridgnorth is a stone-built family home of Elizabethan origin. Extensively enlarged and expanded during the mid-18th century, the Hall today exudes Georgian charm and character, while preserved Elizabethan features give visitors a feel for the original house. Stone steps lead down to a garden where Elizabethan topiary meets the luxury and elegance that typified Georgian tastes.
Senior house steward Alexa Buffey says, “It’s such a pleasure to open up Morville for visitors. The property is much loved, both by the family who live there today and local people. It’s a delight to hear stories from past residents and workers who remember their time at Morville with fondness.”
Members of the public are welcome to visit Morville on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 September from noon to 5pm, with last entry at 4.30pm. Refreshments will be available from St Gregory the Great Church. Admission applies, with free entry for National Trust members and under 5s – visit nationaltrust.org.uk/morville-hall for details.
