Usworth Hall


Usworth Hall was built in the late 18th century for Bernard Shaw.[1] In the mid 20th century it was owned by the National Coal Board. Then in 1965 the Hall was purchased from the NCB by the Washington Development Corporation, for use as its headquarters.[2] Usworth Hall is a Grade II listed building.
