Wentworth Woodhouse, Wentworth, South Yorkshire
Wentworth Woodhouse, one of the largest houses in Europe, is in fact two houses of totally different architectural styles which was built by The First Marquess of Rockingham between 1725 & 1750. The West Front of the house is Baroque style and the east front built in the later Palladian style. The house was sold at the end of March 2017 for £7m following a 5 year campaign by SAVE and the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust. The Preservation Trust have now embarked on a major project to restore the house, which was estimated to cost around £42m.
Our fair at Wentworth Woodhouse will be set out on the ground floor in a series of connecting rooms to include the Pillared Hall, Ship Room, Painted Drawing Room, Library, Blue Room and Chapel Corridors which lead on to a lovely, inviting tearoom.
