Tea & Tales: Wednesday 17 October
After the HUGE success of last year – join us for a guided tour of the Hall with guides Keith Jones and Allan Foster.
Former Guide at nearby Fountains Abbey (and lecturer on Astrophysics) Dr Keith Jones will introduce the
long and varied history of Markenfield, the Markenfield and Grantley families, and how these two families shaped the history of this most-special of family homes.
Long-term Tenant Farmer, Allan grew up living in the Hall before moving across the Courtyard to the newly-converted Farmhouse Wing in the 1960s.
No-one can tell a tale like Allan, so come along and discover what it was like growing up in one of the oldest, continuously inhabited houses in England and his stories of life on the farm and of living in the post-War Hall.
Followed by Tea, cake and more Tales.
