Modern houses live outside its gates, but once inside the grounds of Blakesley Hall you are transported back in time some 400 years. Blakesley is a restored Tudor farmhouse from 1590. The half-timbered structure is typical of building once common in the West Midlands. Its original architectural features, including a herringbone floor, are still intact. The Great and Little Parlours on the ground floor have been restored. Oak furnishings include carved, panel-back armchairs, long refectory tables, and other period pieces. Many artifacts from the era are on display, including pewter goblets and candlesticks. In the painted bedchamber, paintings on the walls from 1590 were uncovered after having been hidden for centuries.
