Heritage Open Day : The Hidden Wall Paintings of Shandy Hall

2017 - 9th September 17
13:45 & 14:45

General event

Home to 18th century novelist Laurence Sterne, Shandy Hall was probably built around 1430 by George Dayville as a medieval long hall, in what was then called Cuckwold. Today the ground floor hall is a museum, open for tours on Wednesdays and Sundays (May - September). Shandy Hall will be opening for Heritage Open Days to give visitors the opportunity to see original features such as the medieval wall-paintings in the ground floor parlour and in the first floor solar (not normally on display), which add to the architectural and historical significance of the Grade 1 listed building.

Visitors are also welcome to look around the gardens, gallery and shop.
