Seaton Delaval Hall, Northumberland

  • Description

    "The main entrance to this sadly neglected stately home. The Delaval family have owned the estate since the Norman conquest, but in 1718 the wealthy Admiral Delaval engaged the architect John Vanbrugh to build him a mansion befitting his status. The result is what some say is his finest work. Sadly, in 1822 the central section was ravaged by fire. It was re-roofed forty years later but the inner shell remained largely untouched until recently when the house was handed over to the National Trust. They are now engaged in a restoration programme" Photo by Derek Voller, 2012.
