History

Stanwick Hall was rebuilt in the Palladian style between 1739 and 1740 by the 1st Duke of Northumberland. Stanwick Hall was a second residence to the main seat of Alnwick Castle in Northumberland.

During World War 1 the hall became a military hospital. In 1918 the 7th Duke of Northumberland died and the death duties were so large that the estate was sold in 1922. In 1923 the hall was demolished.
