Lotherton Hall and gardens :: Shared Description

Lotherton was a medieval village near Aberford, of which only the chapel remains. The chapel now stands adjacent to Lotherton Hall, the main buildings of which date from the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Gascoignes, a noble family whose seat was at nearby Parlington before it was demolished in the early 20th century, later lived at Lotherton Hall which they had acquired in 1825. The last of the line, Sir Alvary Gascoigne, presented the Hall and grounds to the City of Leeds in 1968. An exhibition in the hall highlights the family connection with Florence Nightingale.

The hall and surrounding estate, which includes a large aviary, deer park and formal gardens, are listed grade 2 (list entry 1001223), and open to the public for a fee. The chapel, restored in the 20th century, is listed grade 2* (1200687).
