This was my first visit to Middleton Hall - attracted by that cyclists' siren call, the teashop advert, I pootled up the drive through excellent grounds to find a great cafe in a courtyard behind this old, old building. Whilst partaking of tea and cake, I resolved to find out about the place. Wikipedia has this to say:

'The hall was allowed to fall into disrepair over many years and since 1980 is being restored by a charitable trust. Much work has been done on the main hall, walled garden, Tudor barn complex (now craft shops) and a 16th-century jettied building, which was close to collapse before restoration commenced.

The surrounding 40 acres of land include two walled gardens, the largest man-made lake in Warwickshire and much woodland; plus an area which has been quarried and is now being converted into a nature reserve, RSPB Middleton Lakes.'

Read the whole article here - I was quite astounded, and had never heard of the place before.

Bob,

I see that the lake I walked by at Middleton Hall is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Regards, Peter
