Details

New exhibition in 2019 shining a spotlight on the generations of strong-minded and spirited women who have lived at Burton Constable and who have influenced its development through their fascinating & sometimes surprising stories.
From the dedication of Winifred Constable, who accompanied her brother William on a Grand Tour to try and find a cure for his gout to the flamboyant Rosina, second Lady Clifford Constable, who enjoyed the freedom and financial independence brought by widowhood, and ‘sacked’ Burton Constable of valuable contents to pursue a colourful life in Italy, yet returned to Yorkshire along with much of the collections, to finally be buried in the family mausoleum.

This exhibition is included with the normal hall admission charges.
