Overview

Hardwick Hall is a grand early Georgian house with Grade II* status, built on a fresh site in 1720 by John Kynaston, who moved there from Hordley Hall.

It was the birthplace of the Shropshire Highwayman, Wild Humphrey Kynaston, second son of Sir Roger Kynaston. Direct Kynaston family descendants still live at Hardwick Hall today.

The Hall has three storeys and a cellar, with villas flanking both the south and north sides. The whole faces south overlooking parkland while, to the north, there is a lake. (This is not the National Trust’s Hardwick Hall).

This property is viewable only through Invitation to View
