Hanbury Hall, Worcestershire

Hanbury Hall is a wonderful example of an 18th century English country house, preserved in the condition that it would have had when lived in by its original owners, thanks to the National Trust. It is in open countryside not far from the Worcestershire town of Droitwich.

The house dates from the first decade of the 18th century, having been built on the instructions of Richard Vernon, a wealthy well-connected lawyer who moved in all the right circles and earned huge fees by working for very rich people. He spent his fortune on his house and estate, which are now open to the public.
