Markenfield Hall is a rare moated medieval manor house sited a few miles south of the cathedral city of Ripon. It's immaculately maintained and provides a valuable insight into medieval architecture in its largely original state.
We had become aware of the hall through our facebook page "North Yorkshire Actually" that we run - members had visited and posted images which ignited my interest. As our One-Clue Mystery, it was recognized by George G and by Michael Fong II.
The attached images were captured over two visits in May. The staff and hall are very welcoming and the atmosphere very homely, as the hall is a family home.
Entrance dates and times are limited and admission charges very reasonable. I am a regular visitor to the many castles and abbeys of North Yorkshire, and the Great hall of Markenfield is outstanding in its preservation and quality.
The history of the hall is extensive and can be viewed here :- https://markenfieldhall.com/history/
