DescriptionHi Here is a video of the little known Branthwaite Hall. Branthwaite Hall with its Peel Tower was built near the village of Branthwaite and the towns of Workington / Cockermouth in the mid-15th century by the Skelton family, who acquired the surrounding manor from the Branthwaites by marriage. The new building was constructed from rubble stone with a single tower with a parapet and a spiral-stair turret, with an adjacent hall.The hall was 60 feet long and 42 wide (18 metres by 13 metres), but was largely remodelled in 1604; the new hall is a single space, whereas it was probably originally subdivided, and additional windows were added. Subsequent work was conducted in the 1670s to give the property a grander appearance. The Skeltons held the hall until 1757. The hall is currently privately owned and I wish to thank the current owners for their permission to take this video.
