Brockfield Hall
Brockfield Hall
A late Georgian house, built in 1804 by Peter Atkinson for Benjamin Agar. Atkinson worked in the office of noted York architect John Carr. The most striking feature of Brockfield is an oval entry hall, which features a cantilevered staircase. The interiors display fine art and furniture, and mementoes assoociated with the Fitzalan Howard family. There is also an unusual collection of glass walking sticks on display.
The house is rectangular in plan, with a hipped roof of slate. The most immediately noticeable feature is a large Venetian window on the first floor which is set in a semi-circular arch of stone panels. Below is an ironwork balcony with stands above the entry porch.

The interior serves partly as a display space for paintings by the Staithes group of artists. Many of the artworks are available for sale.
