This timber-framed house was built in 1590 by Richard Smalbroke, a member of one of Birmingham’s leading merchant families. More than 400 years later, beautiful Blakesley is still a haven; secluded from the avenues of modern houses that lie beyond its gates.
Look out for the 400-year-old wall decorations in the Painted Chamber and the Long Table in the Great Hall – an original piece of furniture listed in the 1684 inventory of the house. The traditional herb garden and orchard is a haven for butterflies and birds.
