About this image
Carnfield Hall is a 15th century 'mansion house' added to during the 16th & 17th Centuries recently rescued from collapse. Its atmospheric interior has fine oak panelled rooms including a 16th Century 'great parlour', Georgian dining room and two impressive Jacobean staircases. For several centuries the seat of the Revell family, the Hall contains a varied and fascinating collection of antique furniture, porcelain and glass, family portraits, needlework and old costumes, 19th Century toys and manorial documents from the 16th Century. Curios including a lock of Edward IV's hair, Princess Charlotte's wedding stockings and Louis XIV's travelling trunk are shown as well as heirlooms of the Cartland family, 19th Century Birmingham industrialists, who live in the Hall today. Collections of antique fans, silhouettes, snuff boxes and local archives can be seen if requested in advance. Special antiques appreciation days can be arranged.
