Long Description:

(visit link)

'Sudbury Hall is an impressive building, built by George Vernon in the second half of the 17th century. The hall is a redbrick building, now owned by the National Trust who first opened it to the public in 1972. One of the many features restored by the trust is the small dome, crowned with a golden ball on the roof of the hall, which acts as a beacon for travellers. The hall contains many fine rooms, the most interesting being, the Long Gallery and the Main Hall with its beautiful staircase, which featured in the BBC's Pride and Prejudice. The formal garden and meadows at the rear of the house lead down to the lakeside.' (visit link)

The National Trust Museum of Childhood is housed in the 19th-century servants' wing of Sudbury Hall and features a reconstructed Victorian schoolroom and nursery with old toys and games. During school holidays or by prior arrangement the National Trust runs regular activities for children such as treasure hunts, craft days and wildlife days.

The clock is set in a decorative ashlar surround and is located on the red brick wall above a broad round-headed quoined carriage arch way on the former servants wing of the hall. It has a black face, gold markings, roman numerals and gold decorative hands.
