An 18th-century mansion and estate shaped by a story of love and neglect
Built for the first Lord Berwick in 1785, Attingham Hall and its beautiful parkland were owned by one family for more than 160 years. As their fortunes rose and fell they proved themselves to be spenders, savers and saviours - providing a fascinating story of love and neglect whose mark still stands in Attingham’s rooms today.
Discover the traces of the family story throughout the mansion, from the flashy but flawed Picture Gallery roof that contributed to the bankruptcy of the second Lord Berwick, to the prized paintings of the cattle that the fifth Lord loved.
Attingham’s saviours, the eighth Lord and Lady, began restoration work that lives on in the Attingham Re-Discovered project. This project aims to bring the mansion back to life, and in 2015, visitors can see our conservation work in action in the Picture Gallery, as we conserve and restore the lower levels of this unique space prior to the reinstallation of paintings in 2016.
• Admire the contrasting rooms in the “masculine” and “feminine” sides of the mansion

• Bring the family to run off steam in our natural play field – why not borrow some sports equipment on your visit and play table tennis?
Through the Roof - the story continues
We're now two years into our Through the Roof Project to replace the secondary glazed roof over the Picture Gallery. This secondary roof protects the grade 1 listed glass and cast iron roof above the Picture Gallery designed by John Nash. In our latest film you can find out how we built the new roof and what we've done to conserved and restore the Nash roof and interior of the Picture Gallery.
