Farnley Hall, North Yorkshire
The hall has been occupied by various branches of the Fawkes family since the middle ages. In the 1780�s Walter Hawkesworth Fawkes commissioned John Carr to add the large Georgian block at the front of the building. His son, Walter Ramsden Hawksworth Fawkes, was a friend of J.M.W Turner and had a large collection of his paintings which much impressed the critic John Ruskin who was a frequent visitor in the nineteenth century. The house was later divided in two, the older part becoming a separate dwelling.
