Belsay Hall

Located in Northumberland, Belsay Hall is a Grade 1 listed country house built between 1810 and 1817. The hall was the residence of the Middleton family until 1962 and whilst they still own the wider estate today, it is administered by English Heritage.

The Belsay Awakes Project is one of the largest of its kind in Northumberland's recent history. Historic Property Restoration have been entrusted as the main contractor overseeing this project, on such a treasured site that is steeped in history. 

The works include the internal protection of the Main Hall and a new roof being installed. The Coach House will be structurally stabilised, as well as further works to the Castle, Kennels and Car Park, with landscaping works to encorporate a new play area. 

The Dean and Chapter and its Fabric Advisory Committee is thrilled with the quality of work produced by HPR Ltd. The skills exhibited in stone masonry are particularly fine. Managers and staff have developed good relations with the client team – we couldn’t have asked for better attitude or commitment.

"HPR recognise, and allow for, the necessary archaeological recording to take place during consolidation work and the disruptions that this may cause to their planned programme of work comes as no surprise to them. This awareness means that their workforce is able to be pro-active in informing the archaeologist of any possible instances when recording may be necessary."
