One of Lancashire's finest sixteenth century buildings, Rufford is famed for its spectacular Great Hall, with intricately carved 'moveable' wooden screen and dramatic hammerbeam roof. It is rumoured that Shakespeare performed here for the owner, Sir Thomas Hesketh, in whose family Rufford remained for 250 years. The hall contains fine collections of sixteenth and seventeenth century oak furniture, arms, armour and tapestries.
