Gawthorpe Hall

Gawthorpe Hall, once the home of the Shuttleworth family for over 300 years, is an Elizabethan House standing on the banks of the River Calder. This magnificent 17th century house still has many of it's original features such as plasterwork ceilings and oak panelling.

In the 19th century, the interior of the house was extensively remodelled by the renowned architect Sir Charles Barry, who  designed the Houses of Parliament. The houses grand period rooms depict the lifestyle of a well-to-do Victorian family.  Gawthorpe Hall is also home to the Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth textile collection.

The mottoes of the Kay-Shuttleworth family are Prudentia et Justitia (Prudence and Justice – Shuttleworth) and Kynd Kynn Knawne Kepe (Kind Friends Know and Keep – Kay). They may be found in various areas of the house, including in the front door porch and around the tower at the top of the building.

Gawthorpe Hall is financed and run by the National Trust in partnership with Lancashire County Council. Since 1953 it has been designated a Grade I listed building by English Heritage.
