Elton Hall

Elton Hall and Gardens

Lady Proby showed us over Elton Hall.  The present building dates back to the 15th century and contains many treasures, including fine paintings, china and furniture.  Its library of around 12,000 books is one of the finest private collections in the country and contains some particularly precious Prayer Books and Bibles some of which were on display in an exhibition illustrating the history of the Bible from Wycliffe’s 14th-century translation to the glory of the King James Bible in 1611.
