Beningbrough Hall is a very popular National Trust property discretely located a few miles north-west of York. It is an elegant country mansion built in 1716 for John Bourchier and is listed Grade I. The hall is flanked by two delightful pavilions of slightly later date (a clock tower and a bell tower) and is set in decorative gardens at the centre of a parkland estate.  Woodhall has been involved with the property for a number of years.

In addition to the quinquennial inspection of mansion and ancillary buildings, including the clock tower, bell tower, stable block, water tower, restaurant, lodge and cottages, we have also administered contracts for external redecoration and repair.  As on the majority of National Trust properties, the buildings were repainted using traditional lead-based paints specially mixed to match the original colour scheme.  Following a successful grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Woodhall was also responsible for co-ordinating the installation of a lift within the mansion and refurbishment of the main exhibition rooms as part of a joint project with The National Portrait Gallery.
