HARVINGTON HALL, WORCESTERSHIRE, AND ITS GLOOMY SECRETS

HARVINGTON HALL, WORCESTERSHIRE, AND ITS GLOOMY SECRETS

Harvington Hall, girdled by a sedge-grown moat, is one of Worcestershire's several ancient houses with strange and stealthy hiding places. It dates from the reign of Henry VIII, and besides the famous priest hole in the stairs contains another beneath the floor of a gloomy corridor leading from the tower to the main reception room - a black recess about seven feet deep entered by a trap-door concealed in the boards. The means of communication with this was a small aperture in an oak beam over the entrance gateway.
