Summer Visit to Moreton Hall and Moreton Morrell College, followed by tea at St Peter’s Church Centre, Wellesbourne
Thursday 31 May, 1.30pm

A guided walking tour around the outside of the College, viewing the parts of the original estate buildings, especially the finely restored early 20th century exterior of Moreton Hall, lasting approximately one hour.

Then we make our way independently to St Peter’s Church Centre, Wellesbourne, where we can hear more from Brian Morgan of Moreton College, about the creator of Moreton Hall, Charles Tuller Garland, whilst enjoying a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

Walking shoes and perhaps a shooting stick are recommended as the ground is uneven in places.

Tickets £10.
