Gawthorpe Hall, built in 1605, reopened after £500,000 year-long restoration

Gawthorpe Hall in Padiham, Lancashire, England has undergone a £500,000 renovation to the external stonework and windows.

Other internal and external remedial work to return the building to its original condition have also been completed.

Charlotte Brontë, author of Jane Eyre, stayed at Gawthorpe Hall in 1850, and in 1855.

The Jacobean hall, built between 1600 and 1605, reopened to the public on April 20, 2016.

Lancashire County Council’s Julie Bell said: “Gawthorpe Hall is a very special building and we are delighted that the work has been completed enabling it to be enjoyed for years to come.
