Brodsworth Hall

 

From Wikipedia: "Brodsworth Hall, near Brodsworth, 5 miles (8.0 km) north-west of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, is one of the most complete surviving examples of a Victorian country house in England. It is virtually unchanged since the 1860s. It was designed in the Italianate style by the obscure London architect, Philip Wilkinson, then 26 years old. He was commissioned by Charles Sabine Augustus Thellusson, who inherited the estate in 1859. It is a Grade I listed building."

 

It is now an English Heritage property and has undergone renovation and restoration of the garden - this series is on the garden.

I would like to visit this place
Tom Wilson: Haven't been inside yet - there are guided tours in the morning and open house from 1.0 pm - so I'll be back, with a further series. We always have a spare bed if you want an overnight stop smile

It looks wonderful; very grand. One can only imagine that lief of those who lived there.
Tom Wilson: Leisured, I think would be the word smile
Certainly a fine looking house Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed - I look forward to seeing the interior on my next visit.
i imagine it was a considerable project for someone at 26, Tom. i think he benefitted immensely from the experience gained on this.
Tom Wilson: I think he did an absolutely splendid job!
It doesn't really look like a home, more like an office or business of some sort.
Tom Wilson: A fairly typical English country house - for those with the money of course smile

A very noble and elegant building, once a place for the rich upperclass people.
Tom Wilson: Indeed it was - now the hoi polloi can wander all over it smile
I recall visiting here when we were English heritage members. One of their few properties with a roof grin
Tom Wilson: I think they are now getting round to putting roofs on smile E.g. at Conisbrough Castle.
I like those pointy bushes!
Tom Wilson: The garden is magnificent.
