Nostell Priory

Nostell is a Palladian house located just outside of Wakefield, West Yorkshire. The house dates from 1733 and was built on the site of a medieval priory. The house and grounds were given to the National Trust in 1953.

Leaving our car in the carpark, (which is free for National Trust members), we started our visit with a walk to the Lower Lake. Here we found a place to have our picnic and watched the swans and waterhens on the water.

From here we walked to the Obelisk Lodge, which is a mile walk away. The lodge was built in the 17th century in some of the 300 acres of parkland. The map you are given on arrival lists different walks around the grounds with varying difficulty.
