Blakesley Hall

Blakesley Hall is a remarkable survival in an urban setting. This exquisite timber-framed house was built in 1590 by Richard Smalbroke, a member of one of Birmingham’s leading merchant families.

More than 400 years later, beautiful Blakesley is still a haven; secluded from the avenues of modern houses that lie beyond its gates. The hall demonstrates how it was an attractive and comfortable home with impressive features such as the uneven Long Gallery, the lavish decorative framing and fine painted cloths. See the wattle and daub panels, climb the twisty old staircase and marvel at the elaborately carved wooden furniture. Discover the atmospheric Painted Chamber with its tester bed and 400 year old wall paintings.

The hall is furnished using an inventory taken in the 17th century and reflects the lifestyle of a wealthy family of the late Tudor and Stuart period of English history. A visit to the hall also includes a chance to enjoy the traditional herb garden and orchard, a haven for butterflies and birds.
