Visit to two important Warwickshire houses:

Arbury Hall and Maxstoke Castle

Salon at Arbury Hall

Arbury Hall

We visited two contrasting Warwickshire houses: the Elizabethan Arbury Hall, which was transformed in the second half of the 18th century by Sir Roger Newdigate into a remarkable example of early Gothic revival architecture.

Maxstoke Castle
Maxstoke Castle

The second half of our day was spent at Maxstoke Castle, an example of a 14th century moated and fortified manor house.  This was by kind permission of the Fetherston-Dilke family in whose ownership Maxstoke has remained for 400 years.
