History of Allerton Castle
Allerton Castle is steeped in history – you can’t help but feel its grandeur when you visit this iconic stately home.
Records of the site date back to 1066. A previous house was built in the sixteenth century, with an adjoining Catholic chapel built in 1809. By this time Allerton Castle was renowned as an ‘elegant new built mansion’.
The present Gothic-style house was built between 1848 and 1854 by Lord Mowbray, Segrave and Stourton – its unique style an unmistakable feature of the North Yorkshire horizon.
By the 1980s essential structural repair was carried out by Dr Rolph, who in 2016 gifted Allerton Castle, its contents, grounds and estate to the UK charity the Gerald Arthur Rolph Foundation for Historic Preservation and Education. Now the foundation works to preserve and restore this Victorian-era stately home.
