Brodsworth Hall is a Victorian country house that was built in the 1860s.

Usually, at this time of year, the tourist attraction would be filled with visitors exploring the history of the house and the sprawling gardens.

Because that is not possible at the moment we thought we would bring you photos of the hall in the past to enjoy.
