Murder, grave robbing and insanity are all part of the story of this fascinating and unique building - the Manor House or Bromwich Hall has seen it all. Built by Richard de Marnham in the 1270s, Bromwich Hall is now probably one of the most important surviving medieval timber framed buildings in the Midlands and the most recent building to become part of Sandwell Museum Service.

The construction of its great hall is thought to be the earliest of this type of construction in the country in a standing building.

Over its 750 year history Bromwich Hall has been the home of a number of notable residents including the Solicitor General to Charles I. It has also been the home of ordinary families when it became tenements in the later 1800s. The site was a public house from the 1960s and when it first opened was an extremely prestigious venue, where VIPs would dine. The pub closed in 2009 and the building is now back in the guardianship of Sandwell Council and looked after by Sandwell Museum Service.

You can now experience Bromwich Hall with our 3D tour
