Shotton Hall


Shotton Hall was a country house built c.1760 in Shotton near Peterlee in County Durham. The Hall was built on estate lands which belonged to the Thompson family from the reign of Elizabeth I. The family’s heiress Elizabeth Thompson married Charles Brandling in 1756. However, following unsuccessful speculation in coal mining the Brandlings’ had to sell their estates in 1850, including the Shotton Hall and Gosforth House. Today the Hall is owned by Peterlee Town Council and can be hired for weddings, conferences and business events. Shotton Hall is a Grade II listed building.
