Mr & Mrs Simon Wood, the owners of Brockfield
Hall, will give a guided tour around this fine late Georgian house. Begun
in 1804, it was designed by Peter Atkinson, assistant to John Carr of York. Its
outstanding feature is the oval entrance hall with a cantilevered stone
staircase curving past an impressive Venetian window. The house also contains
the countryâ€™s biggest permanent exhibition by the Staithes Group of artists.
Before the viewing Mr Wood will give members an introduction to his collection,
some items of which are available for purchase.
