Gawthorpe Hall was built in the early 17th century for Sir Richard Shuttleworth although the family owned the estate for 200 years before. Much of the original plasterwork remains and the long gallery is hung with early 17th century portraits. Many of the paintings are on loan from the National Portrait Gallery. Several rooms contain an exhibition of needlework, lace, textiles and costumes collected by the late Hon. Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth, who was the last member of the family to live here. Set in a wooded park with riverside walks.
