Use of the historic private woodland and pasture surrounding Assington Hall
Assington Hall is surrounded by two wooded areas each of about 3 acres with many fine mature trees as well as 25 acres of pasture with a small stream. The setting is peaceful and attractive for a taking stroll or taking a chair to sit and read or study. Pasture areas are grazed by sheep, goats or geese.
The site has considerable historic interest, surrounds the village church and remains of the old Hall, built on the site of a Benedictine priory and was the former seat of the Gurdon family for over 400 years. The Hall has also been used for training by a Christian lay order in the 1950s.
We have developed the site as a Christian Centre over the past 25 years in collaboration with local churches and charities.
