Hare­wood Cas­tle, along with the devel­op­ment of habi­tat for wildlife, in­clud­ing the red kite.

Both he and Mr Ussher are fol­low­ing in their fa­thers’ foot­steps. Neville Ussher was per­sonal agent to the late Hon Ge­orge Las­celles, Earl of Hare­wood. They too were for­ward think­ing in the face of crip­pling death du­ties and opened Hare­wood to the pub­lic.

Mr Ussher says: “The biomass boiler is a switch of in­vest­ment from prop­erty and should gen­er­ate more funds for main­te­nance and restora­tion.”

Lord Hare­wood adds: “By re­al­is­ing the value of some of our cot­tages and rein­vest­ing in green en­ergy, we will be able to safe­guard the fu­ture of Hare­wood’s his­toric land­scape and the ma­jor build­ings it con­tains.” RE­TIRE­MENT de­vel­oper McCarthy & Stone is invit­ing the over 70s to find out more about its as­sisted liv­ing apart­ment and its per­sonal sup­port and care ser­vices at Wind­sor House in Sh­effield.

It is build­ing 64 pri­vate apart­ments on Abbey­dale Road, de­signed to of­fer con­tin­ued home own­er­ship and all the help needed to main­tain in­de­pen­dence. Each flat will com­prise one or two dou­ble bed­rooms, a lounge and din­ing room, kitchen and bath­room.

Those opt­ing to pur­chase off plan can ben­e­fit from up to £10,000 dis­count off their cho­sen apart­ment. Prices start at £184,950.

PIC­TURE OF EARL OF HARE­WOOD: JONNY HAR­RIS.

Hare­wood House, top, de­signed by ar­chi­tect John Carr, is set to con­vert to green heat pow­ered by a biomass boiler. To fund the con­ver­sion, some of the prop­er­ties on the es­tate, above left, are be­ing sold off in three lots. David Las­celles, Earl of Hare­wood, hopes it will cut the £150,000-a-year fuel bill by a third.
