Busby Hall Picnic with the Yorkshire Section 22nd May 2016
We were kindly invited by The Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire Barry Dodd CBE to hold a picnic event on the lawns of Busby Hall
The hall is a grade II listed building built in 1764 for members of the Marwood Family. It is pleasantly situated in a spacious park, closed in on the south by the Cleveland Hills, and with fine views to the front over the Leven Vale. In the grounds there are some fine specimens of the Indian and Black Cedars, Wellingtonia and other species. On the lawn is a magnificent specimen of the Spanish chestnut, which covers about one fifth of an acre, and is supposed to be about 500 years old. The estate includes extensive woodlands stretching for around one thousand acres.
