Crook Hall, Consett

  • House & Family History: Crook Hall was similar to demolished houses such as Green Croft Hall, Lanchester, and Helmington Hall, Willingdon. During the French Revolutionary Wars the House was used as a Roman Catholic seminary for professors and students from Douai. After Crook Hall was demolished in 1900 the stone was purchased by George Neasham to use in his House, West Park, near Lanchester.
