Description

Hoghton Tower

This fine old home has been owned by the same family since the Norman Conquest. The family also has links back to William The Conqueror and to Lady Godiva of Coventry. (Whilst taking the picture I did look out in vain for anyone on horseback but, it was after all winter!)
