BROUGHAM 10A - Brougham Hall
Brougham Hall, Eamont Bridge, Penrith in the Eden Valley, Cumbria.
The earliest parts of Brougham Hall date from the 13th and 14th centuries, but much renovation and building work was carried out in the 17th century by Lady Anne Clifford. In the 1830s the hall was owned by the Lord Chancellor, Henry Brougham who invented the Brougham Carriage (the first one-horse carriage). In Victorian times the hall was known as the Windsor of the North, due to regular visits by Edward V11 and George V1. Prior to WW11 it was commandeered by Winston Churchill for the development of a secret tank. The hall was rescued from dereliction in 1985 and has undergone extensive renovation work. Brougham Hall is currently home to a cafe and craft workshops.
