7 August @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
A talk by John Dabell on lames Paine’s work at Hickleton Hall. John grew up in Hickleton and has spent many years researching the history of this important Georgian country house and park and tells the fascinating story of its owners and architects. The Hall was built for the banker Godfrey Wentworth by lames Paine between 1745 and 1748 at about the same time that he was building Doncaster Mansion House. Hickleton Hall was enlarged and altered at least 3 times in its history. It passed from the Wentworth family to the Halifax family, and was latterly best known as a Sue Ryder Home.
