About Aston Hall is a 17th century red-brick mansion steeped in rich history. The mansion was originally built between 1618 and 1635 for Sir Thomas Holte, and soon after in 1643 Aston Hall was attacked by a Parliamentarian force from Coventry during the English Civil War. In 1817, the mansion became home to James Watt Junior, a Scottish engineer, businessman and activist. The building is now open to the public and has been fully restored to its former Jacobean grandeur.
