Biddulph Old Hall, Biddulph - Staffordshire Moorlands

Substantial remains of a mansion constructed in the 1580s for Francis Biddulph. It came under siege by the Parliamentarians in 1643 when the east range was destroyed and the house fired. The tower was repaired with the aid of Historic England grant funding. Historic England continues to work with the owners to inform the management and future consolidation of the monument.
