Eglingham Hall, Alnwick. 1990

A country house dating back to the 16th or 17th centuries. The oldest part of the building is the west wing, but the main part of the house was probably built in 1728. A number of medieval fragments may have come from Harehope leper hospital. There have been later additions and alterations right down to the early 20th century. The architect may have been William Wakefield and the design is believed to have been influenced by Vanbrugh's Seaton Delaval Hall. This is a Grade II* Listed Building protected by law.
