The very impressive Salmesbury Hall lies 6 miles east of Preston. It was built in 1325 by Gilbert de Southworth and was the home of the Southworth family until the early 17th Century
The beautiful wattle and daub building is Grade 1 listed and still exudes all the atmosphere of a medieval family home.
The black and white exterior is stunning as is the hammer beam ceiling in the Great Hall
The impressive Elizabethan fireplace was built in 1545
Salmesbury Hall was the home of Saint John Southworth, one of the English Catholic Martyrs, who was executed in 1654.
