Kirby Hall is one of the finest houses built in the reign of Elizabeth I in the 16th century. The Hall was begun by Sir Humphrey Stafford in 1570 but later completed by Sir Christopher Hatton, Lord Chancellor and a favourite courtier of the queen.
It features sophisticated carved stone ornament influenced by the most up-to-date Italian and French architecture. In the 17th century Hatton’s descendants created the formal Great Garden in the fashionable court style of William and Mary. Most of the house fell into ruin in the 19th century but the magnificent garden has been recreated by English Heritage.
This guidebook includes a tour of the spectacular remains and a vivid account of the history of Kirby Hall, providing an insight into life in a great country house from the 16th century onwards.
