Beningbrough Hall

I love visiting National Trust houses, so when we went to Beningborough Hall the other week I finally signed up and became a member.  The hall is a large Georgian mansion near the village of Beningborough in North Yorkshire and was built in 1716.  

A lot of National Trust places are closed or partially closed during the Winter months; Beningborough Hall was undergoing some building work and closed at the earlier time of 4pm, although it was cheaper to get in.  The Hall itself was only accessible via a lift due to the main entrance being closed which meant that I couldn’t go into the Hall because of my ridiculous fear of lifts!  This gave us more time to walk around the grounds.

One of the first things we saw was the splashes of purple from the crocuses and spring flowers starting to bloom.  The snowdrops were also out already so I took the opportunity to snap some photos.  Afterwards, we walked along the driveway to the entrance and back along by the river Ouse.  There’s also the watchtower tucked away from the main attraction though this area was extremely muddy so we’ll have to head back in Spring.
