Dating from the 14th Century and owned successively by three families, Southwick Hall illustrates the development of a manor house and still remains the Capron family home.
Eleven rooms are open to the public. Two of these house an exhibition of Victorian clothes worn by members of the Capron family, together with lace, children's' toys and other artefacts. In the stable block are exhibitions of farm and carpentry tools, named bricks and local archaeological finds. Also featured are reconstructions of a cottage kitchen, maid's room and other memorabilia from Southwick Parish.
Visitors may enjoy the grounds, which contain some impressive trees.
Refreshments are available on open days.
