Only chance this year to see old hall.

PEOPLE can have their once-a-year look inside an historic Sandwell building on Bank Holiday Monday.

Haden Old Hall, in Cradley Heath, is believed to have been built in the late 1600s, although little else is known of its history.

The building, in Haden Hill Park, is run down and just a shell, with little heating or lighting. It only now opens at special event days during the year.

It stands next to the Victorian Haden Hill House Museum which is fully restored and furnished in period style and open to the public throughout the year.

Cabinet member for leisure services Coun Linda Horton said: "We open the Old Hall on May Day every year to give people the opportunity to have a look around this strange and fascinating old building.

"The Old Hall is a great building to hold events in."

It will be open on Monday, May 6, between 12 noon and 4pm.
