Speke Hall, near Liverpool, is one of the finest examples of a timber-framed medieval house in England. The Hall boasts a Tudor great hall with secret priest's holes, as well as Jacobean and Victorian furnishings. Surrounding the house are gardens designed in the 1850s.
It is a wonderful venue for a workshop with many interesting features to photograph.
The most interesting garden feature is a pair of yew trees, dubbed Adam and Eve. They are mentioned in documents of 1712 but are likely at least 500 years old and perhaps as old as 1,000 years.
