Visited Paycockes House recently for the first time in a few years. The building is much improved since my earlier visits and the National Trust have opened up more rooms and made the experience of visiting the property much more rewarding by dressing some of the rooms and providing wardens in each room who can discuss the use of the rooms, the carvings on the wood work and the general history of the building and its renovation. The property was originally owned by a contemporary of Henry VIII who was a successful cloth merchant in the town and it is a fascinating place and all the more interesting for the human scale of the house. This is not a big house and an hour is probably sufficient time to see it all including the garden. Recommended for a visit if in the area.
