Richard Fleetwood Shawe


Brantingham Thorpe Hall

Brough (Yorkshire)

Purchased 30th Nov -0001


'The park and garden were laid out by or for Richard F. Shawe between 1835 and 1855. The hall, which dates from the early-18th century, was extended in the 1840s. The parkland at Brantinghamthorpe is of interest as a good example of a modest planned landscape of the early-19th century, but of particular historical significance are the remnants of the Victorian formal gardens laid out for visits of the Prince of Wales...Elizabethan house, altered or rebuilt in the late-17th to early-18th century, and greatly enlarged in the Gothick style in the late-1830s. The architect George Devey was employed 1868-83 to transform the building into the present rambling house in a mid-17th century style, built of local honey-coloured limestone with an array of shaped gables and mullioned windows. (Pevsner & Neave, Yorkshire, York and the East Riding, 339-340).'
