New for 2019: William Fowler: A Georgian Architect

William Fowler lived and worked in Winterton during the Georgian and Regency periods. His clients included the Sheffield’s at Normanby and the Winn family of Appleby Hall. This exhibition features a number of Fowler’s architectural drawings for houses built in Lincolnshire.

Open from 2 March

Normanby at War

‘Normanby at War’ explores the period between 1914 and early 1919, when the Sheffield family volunteered Normanby Hall as an Auxiliary Hospital. Here, soldiers convalesced after being treated for injuries received on the front line during the First World War. A ‘hospital book’, kept by the clerk at Normanby Hall revealed a wealth of information about the auxiliary hospital, the patients and the family.

Photographs and autographs of the soldiers are displayed along with two original hospital beds, medical equipment and personal artefacts. Visitors can also explore Normanby Hall’s role in the Second World War, when amphibious tanks were secretly tested on the River Trent at Burton-upon-Stather.

History of the Hall and Family

The display on the Nursery Corridor on the first floor of the Hall explores the history of the building and the Sheffield family. Find out more about the Regency period, from fashion and architecture to Royalty and politics. Beautiful costume relating to the Sheffield family will also be on display.
