The house was built some way above the banks of the River Ouse to avoid being flooded. Judging from the state of the grounds in early December 2009, a good move! Looking south to the River Ouse, the grounds do not contain an 'official' lake! (left: View from south side of Hall, right: view from south facing window)

Some 18th century items of dress?

 

Beningbrough Hall

Adam Walker and his family 1731-1821. Self-taught astronomer Adam Walker was an inventor, writer and travelling lecturer. He is shown with his family - wife, daughter, three sons, two of whom became astronomers. The painting is by George Romney (1734-1802) oil painting on canvas 1796-1801. The presence of a telescope in this domestic scene shows that by the 1790's astronomy was a popular domestic activity. As a long standing friend of the Walker's, Romney described this painting as 'his favourite picture of friendship'.
