great barr hall | lunar eclipse

Stebbing Shaw’s water-colour of this period shows a building completely unlike the Great Barr Hall of today (ignoring its current ruinous state). Whilst a spacious dining hall was positioned in the east part of the building, the rest was a warren, with a multitude of staircases. One resident described it as several houses under one roof.
