The moated island was made about 1260 and parts of the Hall are medieval, but most of it was built by Humphrey Pakington about 1580. Many rooms have their orignal Elizabethan wall paintings.
Humphrey Pakington was a catholic, the Hall contains the best surviving series of priest holes in the country.

Hi Peter, the building has a truly impressive age. Did you look at the ancient wall paintings when you were inside? The house looks like as if it were still inhabited.
My visit was many years ago and I can remember the priest holes but not the wall paintings.
Here is a site concerning Harvington Hall that describes the present use and the details of the inside.
