Whitmore Hall
Whitmore Hall

Thomas W Twyford and his family lived successively at Shelton, Endon, Moor House Biddulph and finally at Whitmore Hall, where Thomas became a breeder of Labrador Retrievers and became a member of the North Staffs Hunt.

Whitmore Hall is a Grade I listed building, designated as a house of outstanding architectural and historical interest. 
It is a fine example of a small Carolinian manor house, although parts date back to a much earlier period. The hall has beautifully proportioned light rooms, curving staircase and family portraits with a continuous line from 1624. The family seat for over 900 years of the Cavenagh-Mainwarings, direct descendants of the original Norman owners.
