Normanby Hall

Normanby Hall is a classic English mansion, located near the village of Burton-upon-Stather, 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire.

The present Hall was built in 1825–30 to the designs of Robert Smirke for Sir Robert Sheffield (1786–1862), whose family had lived on the site since 1539. It replaced a previous 17th century building. The family moved out of Normanby Hall in 1963. The Hall is now in the care of the North Lincolnshire Council. The former 350 acre (1.4 km²) estate around the Hall is now a Country Park. Within it, there are a restored working Victorian walled garden, a farming museum, a stableyard, duck ponds, a deer sanctuary, a fishing lake, a miniature railway and broadleaf woodland.

Samantha Cameron, wife of the Conservative party leader and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron, grew up on the Normanby Hall estate.[1][2]
