What is the history of The Renaissance at Kelham Hall to the present day?
There have been three halls at Kelham over the centuries, all built by the Manners Sutton family, whose links with the area go back to the 12th century. The first Kelham Hall was built shortly after the end of the Civil War for Robert Sutton, 1st Lord Lexington. From 1903 Kelham Hall was used as a theological college for the Society of the Sacred Mission, an order of Anglican Monks. The Society trained missionaries here until 1974, except for during both World Wars, when the Hall was used by the military.
The Monks added a west wing to the original Victorian building and built the domed chapel beside it. This is the second-largest concrete dome in England. Many of the Monks chose to be buried at Kelham and their graves can be seen in the Monk's Graveyard, beyond St Wilfrid's Church. The church dates back to the 14th century.
In 1973 the Society sold Kelham Hall to the Newark and Sherwood District Council for its administrative headquarters.
