Seaton Delaval Hall
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
In the park is an ornate monument to John, son of Lord Delaval. A tragically-comic tale clings to the monument, as told by the inscription, which tells that John died, aged 20, as 'a result of having been kicked in a vital organ by a laundry maid to whom he was paying his addresses.'
As of this writing the National Trust has launched an appeal to raise the funds necessary to purchase Seaton Delaval Hall so that it can be purchased, to prevent it being sold privately.
