The hall is behind the Shaw Memorial Church (pathway to the right of the church). The day I went, it wasn't open so I could only see the outside. It was obviously an historic building in a lovely forest setting.

Yes you've guessed it we visit churches. This is a typical church for the area, small and wooden. When we got there, there was a service going on so we couldn't have a good look round but it looked very nice from the door.

Cool green environment and quiet place to walk around. When we visited, the hall is not open thus we could only walk around the surrounding.
