LOOKING AT OLD BUILDINGS GROUP
THURSDAY, 25 MAY 2017 – GAWTHORPE HALL

Gawthorpe Hall, an Elizabethan gem, is a stunning structure with a rich history.
It is sometimes referred to as the 'Downton of the North'.
Although not as grand, Gawthorpe was redesigned by Sir Charles Barry (who also redesigned Highclere Castle, the filming location for ITV's Downton Abbey).

The Grounds Take a leisurely stroll around the formal gardens with views of the river, or perhaps a short ramble through the woodland to enjoy the wildlife.

Gawthorpe Textile Collection showcases the most extraordinary and intricate needlework, lace and costume amassed by Rachel Kay Shuttleworth as well as contemporary pieces from talented artists across the region. The team regularly host incredible events that support the collection.

The Tea-Room After (or before) a visit to the property why not stop by the tea-room and say hello to the friendly staff. Choose from a selection of scrumptious sandwiches, cakes and scones plus hot and cold drinks – open 11.00am – 5.00pm
