Ford green hall is a lovely place,£3.50 to get in with plenty of parking.

Not a huge place ,but steeped in history with lots of things to see.
staff were very helpful and gave lots of information.

You will enjoy a walk around the house and ground,there is a wonderful wildlife and lake area,just near the walk affording beautiful scenery.

Well worth a visit.

Today a group of 20 of us from our Phoenix Club went to Ford Green Hall a 17th Century timber-framed farmhouse which is situated next to a Whitfield Valley Nature Reserve. The visit started really well with their buffet lunch provided by volunteers which was really excellent. We then went on a guided tour where the guide, Chris, in medieval costume led us around and provided an extremely enjoyable commentary. He really knows his history and his love for the building shone through. I would highly recommend the hall for a small group. (There might be difficulties for people with limited mobility).

The staff was very helpful. The tour was a little bit short but you learn more from this visit than some large houses. The other people in the tour were a good sport and we all thoroughly enjoyed our experience. It is a bit like travelling back in time.

Decided to take a visit to Ford green hall on spur of the moment. So glad we went as we started with a walk around the nature reserve, then on to the hall. Very interesting how people lived in those days. There is plenty of information to read while walking around the hall. Well worth a visit.

An enjoyable Sunday afternoon was spent here. It is a lovely place and the signage boards inside give you all the information you need. We could imagine the Ford family in the Parlour, the kitchen and the hall. Upstairs there are some dressing up clothes and hats for the children and adults to wear. You are encouraged to take a Selfie. There is a version of the old fashioned shove ha' penny which we enjoyed having a try at. There was small puzzles and other toys to keep the children amused. The gardens outside are full of herbs and it all looked beautiful. To complete our visit we had a pot of tea and cake.
Well Done to all the volunteers, it is well looked after and is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
