Aww, well you might really enjoy it. Not so long back, I went with a friend of mine to some hall which's now been turned into a restaurant and conference venue. Once upon a time it was lived in, and the history of it was fascinating, with connections going back to the 13th century. There's a tumble-down church there, which you can't get into now. It's been Grade 11 listed because of the original stonework. The interior walls've also been left as they were, but sadly, trees've grown up inside of it and very little remains within what's left of the structure.

Most of those lovely old halls/houses had a church nearby, and the people who worked on the land for their masters were expected to attend.

LOl - well I think the peasants only got Sundays off work. Imagine being dragged out of bed to attend church, when all they wanted to do was to have a lie in!!
