Little Hall, a late 14th Century Hall House on the Market Place in one of the best preserved medieval villages in England.
Mirroring the history of Lavenham over the centuries, Little Hall was first built in the 1390s as the home and work place of the Causton family.  Enlarged, improved and modernised in the mid 1550s, it underwent further extensions later.  However, by the 1700s its fortunes had declined and was divided to provide homes to six families. Discovered and restored by the Gayer Anderson twins in the 1920s/30s, it now provides a unique timeline of architectural and cultural history.  In addition, visitors can stroll round the beautiful gardens which feature the Millennium knot-garden and the rose garden which inspired Yvonne Skargon, designer of the 1991 Royal Mail Rose Stamps.
