Architecturally Burton Court is varied with influences ranging from Norman, Medieval, Regency, Victorian and Edwardian periods. The Norman influence is noticeable in parts of the cellars and also on a large archaeological dig in the grounds that has been ongoing here since 2000. We have since amassed the largest medieval pottery collection in the county. We are still waiting to prove if we have the remains of an earlier castle settlement.
The centrepiece of the house is the spectacular 14th Century Great Hall; a remarkable survivor of medieval architecture that dates back to 1330. The room has been described as the finest of its type in the West Midlands. The Great Hall was used as a Court of law for centuries, hence Burton Court. Oddly enough the court rolls in the 17th Century state that people were held to court for not doing enough archery practice!
