Gawthorpe Hall

Gawthorpe Hall is a superb Jacobean historic house, nestled in the shadow of Pendle Hill, East Lancashire.

Built between 1600 and 1605 for the Shuttleworth family, it has an iconic and important role in the local area. On a visit you can see the original seventeenth century panelling and plasterwork in the Drawing Room. In addition, there is the period Victorian rooms redesigned by Sir Charles Barry. Indeed, this shows what life was like for the family in the 1890s.

Additionally, enjoy the splendour of the Long Gallery. The Hall also has fabulous furniture, paintings and the Gawthorpe Textile Collection displays on the first floor.

Since 1953 it has been designated a grade I listed building. The hall is financed and run by the National Trust in partnership with Lancashire County Council. In 2015 the Hall was given £500,000 funding from Lancashire County Council for vital restoration work needed on the south and west sides of the house.
