    Yorkshire and Humber - South Yorkshire, Brodsworth, Doncaster

    Brodsworth Hall, near Brodsworth, 5 miles (8.0 km) north west of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, is one of the most complete surviving examples of a Victorian country house in England.

    It is virtually unchanged since the 1860s. It was designed in the Italianate style by the London architect Philip Wilkinson, then 26 years old. He was commissioned for the grand residence by Charles Sabine Augustus Thellusson, who inherited the estate in 1859. The house has more than 30 rooms, ranging from grand reception rooms with original furnishings to the servants' quarters. The house is surrounded by Victorian period gardens, which are used for special events throughout the summer.

    It is constructed in ashlar limestone with lead and slate roofs. The main block is a 2-storey rectangular range, having a 9-bay frontage. It is a Grade-I-listed structure.
