GAB Handyman Coventry Service Area National Trust – Baddessham
The National Trust – Baddesley Clinton is an old manor house, probably around eight miles west of the small town of Warwick, in the parish of Baddesley, Warwickshire, England, formerly known as Baddeeton. The house was probably originally built in the thirteen hundreds, when vast expanses of the forest of Arden were first cleared for cultivation. The present building is over one hundred years old. It stands in a delightful wooded area on the Banks of Beconn Forest. It is thought to date from the fifteenth century, when it was begun by John Baddeton who rebuilt it to an excellent state of repair.
A visit to the National Trust Museum takes you on a journey through history. Here you will see an account of the life of John Baddeton. The museum is also visited by people who want to trace their genealogical roots. The National Trust has kept records of their baddesley Clinton’s forefathers, and also provides information about them, during the social distancing time slots. John Baddeton died in 1560, so this is the main focus of this museum.
Another fascinating section of the National Trust Museum in Baddessham is its Medieval Hall, which is two centuries old and a preserved example of hallingale architecture, which is famous in the Middle Ages. You will find a modern section, dedicated to exploring the social distancing time slots in addition to the Medieval Hall. This fascinating venue has a large Medieval banquet room, designed with an open fireplace.
The National Trust’s archive department is located at the Baddessham Art Gallery, which is the oldest gallery in England. The collection here consists of a large range of paintings, including early British Masterpieces. There is also an Early Georgian Exhibition Centre, where you can view a selection of Georgian style furniture. You can also view some of The National Trust’s collection of stamps and coins. The Old Hall, situated in between the Art Gallery and the Science Gallery, is a Grade II listed building.
