Jen, Sheila and I went to have a look at what is one of the few National Trust properties locally on 2nd November and it turned out to be holding a Lancashire Day with various exhibitions by groups etc.
We had not been to the Hall for many years despite being National Trust members but it is still very much as we remembered it, as you would expect with an NT property, but the tea room seems to have expanded and it serves up a nice light lunch-type spread.
My old mate Cllr. Mike Booth (Sefton Kew Ward) effectively reminded me to visit the Hall by telling me that he had been working there recently.
Maybe it was because of the Lancashire Day but the Hall was very busy indeed.
