Progress continues to be made on a £2.6 million project to restore the interiors of Sewerby Hall to how they would have looked during the country house’s heyday of 1900.
2014 is a very special year for Sewerby Hall and Gardens and will see the house celebrate its 300th birthday. In its three centuries, the house has evolved from a small Georgian villa into a resplendent country house with unrivalled sea views.
When the house reopens it will be furnished with specially selected pieces from the Victoria and Albert Museum and boast a working service wing complete with a kitchen range. The work undertaken by the Council’s contractor, William Birch & Sons of York, began last September.
