Stanwick Hall

Jul 26, 2011 on BBC TWO at 8:00 PM


Years of neglect have left fungus growing on walls running wet with damp and timbers so rotten that one good storm might bring down the roof. Stanwick Hall is in appalling condition and faces an incredible battle for survival, which City high-flye... (more)rs Gina and Simon have taken on. The Hall is on the buildings-at-risk register which means it is one of the most endangered structures in the country. As the restoration throws up more and more serious problems, long forgotten evidence comes to light showing it was built on the biggest financial scandal of the early 18th century and was emblematic of the huge upheaval in the early 19th century that changed the landscape of Britain forever.
