Visited a friend there and would like to know its History if possible.
Lovely place with a nice garden and lots of old and unusual trees.
The wooden panels are all scenes from "Canterbury Tales"

No
A friend lives there in an annexe, but he is very persuasive and if I ask him I'm sure if he asks the warden he could arrange a visit for a group.
Earlier this morning I asked him about whether it had cellars and he said yes (asked him to try to get me down there) - he had to go into them when a heating engineer came to fix something and wouldn't go down by himself because he'd seen a ghost so my friend went with him My friend is a reverend,very down to earth chap
The place is a sort of retirement home

Once described as having 22 rooms, Lodge and Back lodge, the lodge being for the coachman, the back lodge occupied by the gardener. In recent History its been owned by some interesting and perhaps colourful character's. Early 19th century it was owned by the Tobin family, around 1840/50 the former Lord Mayor of Liverpool, 1854, James Aspinall Tobin who describes himself as a Magistrate and African Merchant, more

As a slight aside... interesting to see Scotland referred to as "North Britain" in the Will. Always good to see the reaction up here when you use that term these days. England, Wales and North Britain in the conversation usually get 'em going! Always make sure you've a clear run to the Pub door when you mention it ! grin Apologies for veering OT.

Going to be fun in England if the North Britain's say NO next month, after all those years of shouting freedom from the English , the guys I know will get some windups.

I have a photo the was passed over to me as we thought it was taken out by the front door of Eastham house, we went up to the house and everybody were helpful and lovely and tried to find out if the picture was taken outside, still not sure, it was a photo of my grandad about 10 other guys on chairs some with slippers on but all had little badges, too small to see what was on them
