The Wing of Morton House forms part of an impressive manor house dating to the 16th century, with a rich and interesting history dating back hundreds of years.

Morton House has had some notable owners and visitors throughout its years including Kings, religious dignitaries and local, wealthy industrial owners such as ship owners and colliery directors.
