History outing to Arley Hall & Gardens Wednesday 6th August 2014


Many thanks to Janet Palmer for organising an outing to Arley Hall & Gardens.
We enjoyed the delightful gardens in the sunshine, an informative tour of Arley Hall, a visit to the chapel and a delicious lunch in the Tudor Barn Restaurant.


For folks who were unable to join us on the trip, check out the website:

Disney Channel to make first UK production and its chosen Arley as its location.


Evermoor, about an American teen who is uprooted from her city home in the US for a new start in England, will be filmed at Arley Hall. It will be produced by Liverpool-based Lime Pictures, the company behind Hollyoaks and The Only Way is Essex. Due to air this autumn, it will be the first UK production to be shown on the Disney Channel.
