Barton Seagrave Hall 7154

Kettering, England, Northamptonshire, Kettering

Brief Description

Barton Hall is an 18th-century Grade II listed house with a Grade I listed Orangery. The historic parkland was designed by Humphry Repton.

History

The hall is an E-plan house with Elizabethan origins and early-18th-century additions. The first documented parkland (1712) involved planting 40,000 trees of several kinds, including a double avenue to the east of the house. The parkland was later redesigned by Repton. A 19th-/early-20th-century owner was Charles Wickstead, a local manufacturer who gave the land for the neighbouring Wickstead park.
