The Moat House
35-36 Lichfield Street
T: +44 (0) 1827 311972
The Moat House is a Grade II historic building located in what were once the grounds of Tamworth Castle. Built in 1572 by William Comberford as a family home, it sits on the banks of the River Tame. A rare family of 18 Black Swans live around the grounds. In 1815 the Moat House became a lunatic asylum. It is purported that walking the second floor corridors is the ghost of a young girl named Emily. It is believed she was locked in the tower by her father and died in a fire that originated from a burning candle. So it’s an old haunted looney bin – perfect!
HOW TO GET THERE
The Moat House is a handsome multi-gabled Tudor mansion, standing within delightful grounds, secluded from Lichfield Street in the heart of Tamworth’s town centre.
Tamworth train station (0.67 miles). Regular train services from London Euston, Nottingham and Birmingham.
The 461 bus stops the closest at “Sunset Close”, however since it’s only a short walk (0.3 miles), any bus serving Tamworth Town Centre would do.
There will be car pooling threads on the forums for those driving to the event who have space in their vehicles or those wishing to catch a ride. Links will be added here when they appear.

As we have been sent hundreds of 10ml juices of various flavours/strengths,we thought it would be nice to give a bottle away with every food purchase(while stocks last).
