Hellaby Hall Country House, Rotherham

Hellaby Hall is a small, late 17th century country house, Grade II * listed and occupying a dominant place in the local landscape. It had been fire-damaged before being purchased by Whiteley Geddes Developments. Proposals were made to repair and extend the hall to create a 52-bedroom luxury hotel.

Close liaison was required with Rotherham Borough Council and English Heritage to ensure that the historic elements of the building were respected. Of particular interest was the main facade of ashlar with sash windows which were thought to be the earliest examples of this type of window in South Yorkshire.
