Greater Lincolnshire - Normanby Hall

Topic Progress:

Normanby Hall near Scunthorpe is a classic country house popular for its Victorian walled garden, country park and farming museum.

Built in 1825, Normanby Hall is a Regency mansion owned by the Sheffield Family, the original owners of Buckingham Palace, and managed by North Lincolnshire Council.

The hall and museum are only open throughout the summer months, but the award-winning gardens, events and wildlife make this a destination to enjoy all year round.

During the First World War the Sheffield family remained in the house helping to care for the convalescing soldiers. The story of how the hall was used as an auxiliary hospital during the conflict is told in the ‘Normanby at War’ exhibition on the first floor of the hall.
