Baddesley Clinton, England

14 February 2012

Baddesley Clinton is close to where we live. Amanada was visiting with her children. We decided to do a day out exploring.

Baddesley Clinton is a moated home. Parts of it dates back to the 15th century. During Tudor times when the national religion was the Church of England, many maintained their Catholic faith. This had to be done in secret. Fines, imprisonment or death waited for those who were caught. Baddeley Clinton was equipped with a secret chapel so the Ferrers could practice the true faith. There were also Priest's Hiding Holes where the priests would hold should the home be subjected to a surprise inspection from the priest hunters. One of the nodes was in the sewer system of the house.
