Ryston Hall

St Michael's parish church dates from the 12th century and was restored in 1901. It is a grade II* listed building.[3]

Ryston Hall is a grade II* listed country house, built 1669-72 by the architect Sir Roger Pratt as his own home in 1669. It was later remodelled c.1780 by Sir John Soane and again by Anthony Salvin in 1867.[4] The formal gardens and woodland walks are open to the public several times a year. The grounds also contain one of the oak trees that are called Kett's Oak, and is associated with Kett's Rebellion of 1549.[citation needed]
