From The Archives: Brodsworth Hall


Brodsworth Hall is only five miles away; it's a smallish Victorian country house left as it was when the last inhabitant died in the 1980's. It has some nice formal gardens at the back.

I've visited three times, once when it was free admission as part of the Heritage Open Day programme, and another two times when I'd bought an annual membership pass for entry to English Heritage properties...I don't think the individual price of admission is good value though. 

It's not easy to reach using public transport: it's either a walk of about a mile down the road from Marr (one bus per hour) or a shorter walk from Pickburn Crossroads (four a five buses a day.)
