Ellingham Hall


Ellingham Hall was built in the 19th Century for Sir John Haggerston, on the site of an early building in Ellingham, Northumberland. Later, the hall was extended by Edward and Mary Haggerston. During the Second World War the 'land girls' dug over the tennis courts to provide food, and the reception rooms and Chapel were used as a storage base for tea and flour. From 1955 to 1988, the Hall was uses as a Preparatory School for boys. After many years of disuse and decline the Hall was purchased in 1995 and restored by its current owners, for use as a wedding, accommodation and corporate events venue.
