  • I will buy it
  • I love the new maze, extra rooms, gardens and high walls
  • Whitburn Hall was built in the 16th century and bought by Sir William Williamson in 1719.
  • But, in 1813 all the changes that were made were removed because it cut off the sun and sea views.
  • The Grand Old Building deteriorated over the next two decades as the wrangle over it's future wore on. Without the money or resources to repair the building or staff or servants to run it.
  • 1864, it was the first house in the region to be lit via new gas lights. There were 12 servants and the Prince of Wales visited on several occasions, so now the small manor house had changed into a stately home.
  • During WW2 this house was used by the army as a hospital for injured.
  • It was inevitable that Whitburn Hall, like many other mansions, could not survive in the modern world.
  • There was a fire in Whitburn Hall in 1974 which caused the house to burn.
