It is believed the market house in the nearby town of Ledbury was modelled on the Great Hall at Eastington and many of the Tate Gallery’s priceless works of art were stored at the property during the Second World War. The 20th Century author Radclyffe Hall often visited and wrote her acclaimed novel, The Well of Loneliness, during a stay in the early 1920s.
The Eastington Hall collection has graced the rooms of the magnificent 13th Century building for over 20 years. Chorley’s have received kind instructions from Mr and Mrs Hugh Taylor to sell many of the wonderful examples of early oak, walnut and mahogany furniture, fine Eastern rugs, model steam boats and planes and country house effects. The collection, and adding to it, has been a lifelong passion of Mr and Mrs Taylor.
