Sutton Scarsdale is between phases of a conservation project, with the whole of the hall fenced off until these works are complete. Please note, this means that there is no access to the hall. However, the grounds remain open. Due to covid-19, please maintain social distancing in order to protect our visitors, and any staff or volunteers who may need to be on site.
The imposing shell of a grandiose Georgian mansion built in 1724-29, with an immensely columned exterior. Roofless since 1919, when its interiors were dismantled and some exported to America, there is still much to discover within, including traces of sumptuous plasterwork. Adjacent to the parish church, Sutton Scarsdale Hall is set amid open grassed land, with beautiful views, sloping down toward a ha-ha ditch.
