Baddesley Clinton

From the NT:

 

Baddesley Clinton was the home of the Ferrers family for 500 years.

 

Much of the house you see today was built by Henry Ferrers, a lawyer, diarist and antiquarian, in the late 1500s.

 

The house was a sanctuary not only for the Ferrers family, but also for persecuted Catholics who were hidden from priest hunters in its secret hiding places during the 1590s.
