Food and Drinks
Burton Agnes Hall is an Elizabethan stately home that has stayed within the same family for more than four hundred years. Fifteen generations have filled the Hall with treasures, from carvings commissioned when the Hall was built to French impressionist paintings, contemporary furniture, tapestries and other modern artwork in recent years.
History to the present day
In 1173 Roger de Stuteville built the Norman manor-house, the lower chamber of which still remains today. Since then the property has never changed hands by sale. The estate of Burton Agnes was inherited by Cicely Boynton, daughter of the 11th Baronet, she married Thomas Lamplugh Wickham and their younger son, Marcus was responsible for extensive restoration of the house.
