Newton Hall, Newton-by-the-Sea

  • Description

    "A simple Georgian house, late C18th, for Joseph Forster. William Newton was probably the architect. It is built of pink sandstone. Grade II* listed. Like a number of country houses, it now markets itself as a venue for corporate events, weddings, and other events. ========================================================== Newton (1730-98) was one of a breed of skilled, provincial builder-architects who, during the C18th and C19th, created substantial parts of the built fabric of the country that we see today. He spent the whole of his life in Newcastle and established a large practice in the region, mostly building or remodelling country houses, but also designing a number of public buildings and housing in the city. Colvin's Dictionary of British Architects describes him as a "competent but conventional Georgian architect whose work is sometimes elegant, always pleasing, but never remarkable." ==========================================================" Photo by Stephen Richards, 2003.
