Blakesley Hall is a picture-perfect timber-framed Tudor house which is situated just a few miles from the centre of Birmingham. The beautiful Elizabethan house is one of Birmingham’s oldest and most historically significant buildings. It was built over 430 years ago in 1590 by Richard Smalbroke, a member of one of Birmingham’s leading merchant families.
