  • 11 — 14 September 2014

A 14th century manor house, Samlesbury Hall boasts almost 700 years of fascinating history, from the battle of Bannockburn to the purchase in the 1920s. Samlesbury, together with its ghosts, provides the visitor with an amazing insight into life at Lancashire's historic Home.

From an ancestral home, to a school, a factory a pub. Pillaged and preserved throughout the years from student to historian… from serf to Lord, from priest to witch, from waitress to Trustee, all have a story to tell.
