Medieval manor in England

In England Jan-Eric and Jennifer Österlund live in this 1830 manor house which has never been extended and is a typical medieval hall house. A 14th century manor all dressed up for Christmas.
Four men were needed to carry the impressive tree into the great hall and a wooden frame was specially built to support it safely.
The oak door dates from the 1560s.
The fireplace in the great hall was installed by William Sherman; his initials and those of his wife are carved as part of the frieze. The Flemish tapestry, c1680, illustrates the Story of Samson.
