Blackadder Hall, in the
BBC Onesitcom " Blackadder", has been the official residenceof the fictional Blackadder family since at least some time before 1648. It has been the home of two incarnations of the Edmund Blackaddercharacter: Sir Edmund Blackadder (') and Lord Blackadder (').
In "The Cavalier Years", the year is 1648 and the
English Civil Warwas just ended. When Charles I is in flight from Oliver Cromwelland the Roundheads, Sir Edmund Blackadder allows him to stay in a blackcurrantbush at Blackadder Hall. However, Oliver Cromwell arrives and captures the King.
In "Back & Forth", it is
New Year's Eve 1999, and Lord Blackadder is entertaining guests at Blackadder Hall. He tells them he has built a time machine and he will go back in time and collect any historical items they want. The time machine actually leads to a trap door to the basement where he has a collection of items. But to his surprise the time machine actually works. When his time machine lands him in the Elizabethan period, Queen Elizabeth I is holding her court at Blackadder Hall and encounters the present day Blackadder, whom she mistakes for one of his ancestors. She asks him for a present and he gives her some polo mints. She rewards him with her crown. The dining room of the house has a portrait of Captain Blackadderfrom the fourth series of the show.
