Unexpected 400 year old sight

Johnson Hall, Eccleshall

This amazing, and largely unremarked, house near Eccleshall dates back to the sixteenth century - though it was extensively restored in the late nineteenth century.   It now houses luxury apartments.

Strangely enough, coming across this manor house just reminded me of one of the joys of just strolling about on country footpaths: the unexpected sight.   
I had never heard of this place, Johnson Hall - but, suddenly, there it was!
