Full Description

A print of 1790 in the possession of the present owners shows a stone building with double finial crosses at SK 7302 6050, this has now been demolished and the site is wooded leaving no surface evidence of the early structure which was almost certainly a chapel - possibly a "follow-on" of that demolished earlier. (1)
The (earlier) chapel was destroyed in the early C18 and another new mansion was built early C19. (2)
See M18123 for earlier chapel, M11846 for Beesthorpe Hall.
