The West Wing, Holywell House
The West Wing, Holywell House
Keys to the Past Web Site: Holywell Hall, although now two houses, was once a larger building. It was probably built in the early to mid-18th century, but the wings may be earlier, possibly 16th century. It was built from sandstone rubble and has a slate roof. Holywell is so named because St. Cuthbert's body is believed to have rested there c.882 on its travels with the Lindisfarne Community who were evading the Danish raids. From 1402 the Nevilles of Brancepeth Castle lodged their Constables on this site.
