Newby Hall, built in the 1690s by Sir Christopher Wren was later enlarged by John Carr and Robert Adam. The orangery, commissioned by William Weddell, dates from 1770 and was designed by Adam’s foreman William Belwood, while Adam was working on Newby.
Over the past 350 years, the building has had many uses, including Tea Room, changing room for visiting theatre companies and Beaters’ Room during the shooting season, all of which had taken a heavy toll.
The Grade I listed building has undergone a major restoration programme, partly funded by a grant from the Country Houses Foundation. This included reinstatement of the building’s original floor to ceiling windows as well as the renovation of the Victorian wooden solid beamed roof, redesigned to enable removal of three central pillars, and the installation of under floor heating.
Including christenings, birthdays, afternoon teas and weddings.
