The ‘hid­den gem’ on Ford & Etal Es­tates, the Hall was com­mis­sioned by Louisa, Mar­chioness of Water­ford in 1860 and served as the vil­lage school for al­most a cen­tury. Hous­ing a unique col­lec­tion of life-size wa­ter­colour mu­rals de­pict­ing the faces of those who lived and worked on Louisa’s es­tate in Northum­ber­land, the Hall tells the fas­ci­nat­ing story of Lady Water­ford, a tal­ented artist and great bene­fac­tress who suf­fered much tragedy in her per­sonal life. 2018 marks 200 years since Louisa’s birth, with an open week­end 14th & 15th April.
