If you have not already looked at part 1 and 2, I would suggest that you did as there is some history there as well as many photos of this magnificent house.
Starting this post with pictures of the Priest's Hole.
Priest holes were concealed spots created especially for Priests, so they could hide away safely during a time when Catholics were persecuted. Under Elizabeth I, Priests were often imprisoned , tortured, and even killed. Priest holes were especially disguised within a house to baffle search parties.
