Howsham Hall
Howsham Hall
The Jacobean Hall lies on the far bank of the River Derwent.
It was built in 1610, and is a Grade I Listed Building. It has been occupied by several well connected families of means until it became a preparatory school in the early 1950's., only to close in 2007 through lack of numbers.
It has since been restored and has been seeking a purchaser for a considerable length of time.
Currently around 4.25 million is sought.
Some maintain that the place is cursed, as past male owners seem to fizzle out with no offspring. The finger is pointed at the original owner, one Sir William Bamburgh who took stone and materials from the recently dissolved Kirkham Priory, whose meagre ruins can be seen about 2 miles away.
