Castern Hall, also known as Casterne Hall, is a privately owned 18th-century Georgian detached country house in the Manifold Valley, Staffordshire, England.

Background[edit]

The present three-story, five-bayed Georgian facade dates from a remodelling in the 18th century by the owner Nicholas Hurt, whose family still owns the building<ref>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castern_Hall</ref>. This Georgian facade conceals the older, Tudor hall built by earlier generations of the Hurt family<ref>http://www.casterne.co.uk/index.php/house-gardens</ref>
