Harvington Hall

Harvington Hall near Kidderminster, Worcestershire is an Elizabethan moated manor house dating mainly back to the 1580’s. It contains an ingenious series of “priest holes” – secret hiding places for members of the Catholic clergy trying to avoid persecution, torture and even execution in Elizabeth I’s Protestant England:
