The house from a circa 1902 postcard
House & Family History: Harvington is a moated Medieval and Elizabethan brick, stone, and timber-framed manor house that is noted for its rare wall paintings and its eight priest holes—more than any house in England. Harvington Hall was partially demolished in the 18th century and restored in the 1930s, when the main staircase (a replica of the original, which was re-installed at Coughton Court) was installed.
