HISTORY

INTERESTING FACTS: Strelley Hall was once much bigger. Most of it fell down during Tudor times, and it was never repaired. Archaeological dig findings of the 21st Century indicate a large fire occurred around this time. 

There is a family tree in the hall showing the Strelley line from the 1200s when the family acquired the estate, up to the time when it was lost in 1678 due to gambling debts. 

Several medieval features remain in and around the hall, including an original cellar below the Castle Room.

CLAIM TO FAME: It is rumoured that Elizabeth I stayed at Strelley Hall in secret. For some reason… 

GRIZZLY HISTORY: Nicholas Strelley, the last in the line of the Strelley family to own the hall, ended that succession when he lost the hall due to gambling debts. In his devastation, he placed a curse on gambling at the house. This curse is said to have caused several serving wenches to lose their sanity.
