Ormesby Hall
Ormesby Hall
Ormesby Hall is a Grade II listed Elizabethan country house on the outskirts of Middlesbrough. The Hall was home to the Pennyman family for over 3 centuries. The original Hall is a two storey structure, but the house was altered in the 18th century to provide a three storey block of ashlar under a steeply pitched roof.
The exterior is a sedate Palladian design, but the interiors feature extravagant furnishings and plasterwork decoration, including a very fine collection of historic paintings. Take a trip 'below stairs' to see the Victorian laundry, kitchem scullery, and larder.

The Georgian stable block has been converted to serve as headquarters for the Cleveland Mounted Police, and the Old Wing of Ormesby Hall houses a model railway collection.
