Lemmington Hall near Edlingham
Lemmington Hall near Edlingham
Somewhere behind this facade is a C15th tower-house plus a mid-C18th house, but what we see here today is a late-C18th remodelling by William Newton. The centre bay has a Venetian doorway under a tripartite window under a pediment. Grade II* listed.
Taken from the permissive footpath to the column in the grounds.
Newton (1730-98) was one of a breed of skilled, provincial builder-architects who, during the C18th and C19th, created substantial parts of the built fabric of the country that we see today. He spent the whole of his life in Newcastle and established a large practice in the region, mostly building or remodelling country houses, but also designing a number of public buildings and housing in the city (NZ2464 : The Assembly Rooms, Fenkle Street, NZ2464 : Charlotte Square). Colvin's Dictionary of British Architects describes him as a "competent but conventional Georgian architect whose work is sometimes elegant, always pleasing, but never remarkable."
