Hambleton Old Hall
Hambleton, Rutland, Leicestershire

Hambleton Old Hall is one of the only remaining buildings left from the original village of Middle Hambleton (lost when Rutland Water was created). During the Civil War it was home to the Parliamentarian High Sheriff of Rutland, Abel Barker. It is a privately owned house (and not a hotel as seen in Battlefield!).

How to get here from Hambleton Woods:

Walk: Head west from the woods along the road to the Hall. +
