Signs of life…

Today especially it feels like winter, still. It is cold and we work outside wrapped up against the elements and inside are blessed by our new and very effective biomass heating system! Even so, as we walk around the grounds of Letton Hall the damp decay and bare winter dress of the woodland is giving way to new signs of …

Not too late to plan a break for your group in 2017!

Would you like to plan a break for your church, or group at Letton Hall in 2017?  Well, it’s not too late… Most of our visiting groups plan their events a year or more ahead (although some are a bit more short notice)  Generally speaking that would be our advice, as our bookings calendar fills up early – so it’s good …

Tonka Toys at Letton

It has been a little while since we last blogged – but life has been rather full! After a long period of prayerfully exploring options for renewable energy, involving several false starts and some trips up blind alleys, we have finally embarked on the installation of a biomass plant for Letton Hall.  This is a large and expensive project, but …

Making improvements

As we explained in an earlier post, the last few weeks has been a season of improvements at Letton Hall.  We are grateful to God for the financial resources to decorate, lay carpets and re-furnish various areas of the Hall and Stables – and for a quieter few weeks in which to progress the work! The redecoration of the Stables Meeting …

Solstice reflections

It is the winter solstice (so they tell me); the time in the year when the sun is at it’s lowest point in the sky and we experience the shortest day and longest night. (If you know all the technical terms, celestial equator and sphere, excursion etc. please bear with this somewhat simple description!) The darkness is winning – or so it …

Down time

Last week the carpet fitter came to Letton Hall. Now that might not seem a big deal to you, but then you probably don’t have 22 bedrooms in your house! He came to measure up for the next phase of new carpets, for the top floor bedrooms and corridors of The Hall, as well as some stairs and hallways downstairs – and the flooring …

Profile – David Walmsley

Looking after Letton Hall and running the ministry involves quite a lot of people.  The resident team are familiar to many of you as you see them when you visit but there are many others, working in the background, staff, volunteers, trustees and friends, whose commitment and service make your enjoyment of Letton Hall possible.  From time to time, we …
