Padiham  and  Gawthorpe  Hall,
Gawthorpe  Hall  and  Padiham.
You  can’t  have  one  without  the  other.

The stunning Jacobean hall finds its origins around the same time as the town itself. The hall grew as Padiham grew. Its believed the magnificent 17th century stately home was built around a 1323 defensive pele tower. A constant example of the Padiham spirit to craft something beautiful out of even the most rough and raw of materials.

Gawthorpe Hall was the dream of Sir Richard Shuttleworth; a dream he never lived to see completed. You can enjoy his vision today as you explore the impressive house and grounds thanks to the current owners, the National Trust.
