Cusworth Hall - Saturday 22nd June

Post by Shamblers on Mon May 27, 2013 10:45 pm




Description

Cusworth Hall – River Don – Sprotborough Circular

This is a 4.4 mile walk on good flat paths, cycle tracks and canal paths. The walk starts and finishes at Cusworth Hall – a grade 1 listed building, built in the mid Eighteenth century and open to the public.

Cusworth Hall, Museum and Park re-opened to the public in May 2007, after several years of extensive restoration work. The Hall and its surrounding parkland have been transformed, with entire sections of the interior previously in a poor state of repair has been given a new lease of life. Stunning ceiling paintings in the Italianate Chapel have been revealed and restored, after being hidden under layers of paint for 50 years. The Great Kitchen, Bake House, Still Room and Laundry have also been restored giving a glimpse of what life was like 'below stairs'.

More information can be found HERE

There is a small admission price for anyone wanting to visit the Museum:

Adults £2
Over 60 and under 16s £1
Under 5s Free

PLEASE BRING SPARE FOOTWEAR IF YOU ARE INTENDING TO VISIT CUSWORTH HALL MUSEUM AT THE END OF THE WALK.
