Great Barr Hall

Great Barr Hall, a Listed building, is a nevertheless neglected stately home in Great Barr, Walsall, very near Birmingham, historically in the county of Staffordshire, England.

Formerly the home of the Scott Family (who gave ther name to the nearby Scott Arms pub and shopping centre), during the late 1700's the Hall was owned by Samuel Galton and was the venue for meetings of the Lunar Society.

Some memorials to the Lunar Society, the "Moonstones", are nearby.

Two of the extant lodge houses are believed to be by Sir George Gilbert Scott.

As of September 2 2003, the Hall is owned by the Manor Building Preservaton Trust.
