In our places in Yorkshire, we look after well over 16,000 objects in our precious historical collections. You can sift through them over at our online collections database.
Duty Calls: the country house at war
This project of the Yorkshire Country House partnership (YCHP) looks at the impact of various conflicts on nine of Yorkshire’s major country houses, and the experiences of their occupants and wider communities. Beningbrough Hall and Nostell Priory will both be taking part in 2013 and 2014.
If walls had ears to listen and a tongue to speak, what tales would they repeat?
We remember some of the tales and histories of the men and women who stayed at Beningbrough during the Second World War in a new cross-site exhibition, trail and series of events throughout 2013.
Red Poppies and White Butterflies
At Nostell Priory we invite you to help us discover the small stories of the First World War. We want to hear about what happened to lives at home and away, stories of loss and of hope, for rich and poor, farm worker, landowner, tradesman or maid.
From June 2013
