Firbeck hall

At one stage Firbeck had two great houses.  Firbeck Hall and Parkhill house.  Parkhill house was knocked down in 1935.  Firbeck hall has been in a poor state of repair since the 2nd world war.  See more here.  http://www.firbeckhall.net/campaign.php

Originally the house was a small estate.  A stockbroker bought in the 1930’s and turned it into an exclusive country club.  The Royals were known to visit from time to time.  BBC also used to host a Saturday night dance show from there in the 1930’s.

Recently the Hall has been sold on from one developer to another.  West Lodge house has been renovated, I am guessing this was the original roadway into the site, but the gate has gone and all that remains is a muddy track.  You can rent this Lodge if you want to.

I was told that the developer has to make good Firbeck hall, before he can build properties on the rest of the site.

I managed to take a picture of the house, by going around the back and taking a picture from the fields.

The footway into the site is across from the BlackLion pub, but is blocked off.
