Samlesbury Hall is a historic house in Samlesbury, near Preston, Lancashire.
It was built in 1325 by Gilbert de Southworth. In fact, it was the primary home of the Southworth family until the early 17th century.
This iconic building may have been built to replace an earlier building destroyed during a raid by the Scots, during The Great Raid of 1322. The hall has been many things in its past. Indeed, it has been a public house and a girls’ boarding school. However, since 1925, it has been administered by a registered charitable trust, the Samlesbury Hall Trust. This Grade I listed medieval manor house attracts more than 50,000 visitors each year.
