Wednesday, 8 May 2019 - Visit to Burton Agnes Hall - Rudston Road, Burton Agnes, Driffield YO25 4NB

SORRY THIS VISIT IS WEDNESDAY 8 MAY AND NOT 10 MAY!

Colin Roberts who is a member of the Art Appreciation group will be leading this Visit.

Please see details of a proposed visit by the Sherburn and Villages U3A Art Appreciation Group to Burton Agnes Hall on Wednesday 8 May this year.
NB: Visitors who cannot manage stairs are not able to access all of the Hall. See below for details.
Burton Agnes Hall is an Elizabethan manor house in the village of Burton Agnes midway between Bridlington and Driffield. It was built by Sir Henry Griffith in 1601–10 to designs attributed to Roberts Smythson, master mason to Queen Elizabeth l. The remains of a Norman Manor House originally built in 1173, still stand close to the Hall and are also open to visitors.
Highlights include the Elizabethan carvings of biblical and mythological subjects in the Great Hall which are very impressive. In addition the paintings in the Hall are more varied than might be expected, with art from the Impressionist period and the 20th century as well as more traditional works from earlier periods. The Long Gallery at the top of the house provides a setting where paintings and other art works are seen to advantage.
Burton Agnes Hall has award winning gardens which include a walled garden, known for its large number of different plant species, herbaceous borders, a jungle garden and national collection of campanulas, as well as a woodland walk and maze.
The courtyard cafe offers a selection of 'freshly prepared, home cooked' hot and cold meals, light bites, sandwiches, and snacks. Fresh ground morning coffee and afternoon tea as well as a wide selection of homemade cakes and treats are also available.

Admission prices & Opening times.
Full adult admission is £11.00, £10.50 for Seniors. This includes the Hall itself, the Norman Manor House and the gardens. A guided tour of the Hall can be provided for an extra £1.00 per person and this lasts an hour and a quarter.
Burton Agnes Hall is in the Historic Houses Association and so entrance will be free for people in the party who are HHA members.
All the attractions on the Burton Agnes site open at 11.00 and close at 5.00.
Points to note.
There is no convenient way of getting to Burton Agnes by train and so car sharing arrangements will be needed. It is about 50 miles from Sherburn to the Hall. The Hall is on the A614 York to Bridlington road.


There is no lift in the Hall and so visitors who cannot manage the stairs are not able to access the first and second floors. They are charged a discounted admission price of £5.00
I would like to find out whether enough people would be interested in this proposed visit to make it worthwhile. Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to join this visit
Once I know how many members are joining this visit, further details re car sharing will be given.

AS COLIN HAS ORGANISED A TOUR OF BURTON AGNES HALL, HE NEEDS TO KNOW ASAP OF MEMBERS WHO ARE GOING.
THANK YOU.
PLEASE EMAIL ME, sue.hartley421@btinternet.com to let me know if you want to go.
Regards
Sue
