Everingham Hall (Everingham Park)

  • Built / Designed For: William Haggerston

    House & Family History: Everingham was sold in 1982 by Lady Herries, along with 2,868 acres, after a period of 800 years in the possession of the Constable and Constable-Maxwell families. An institution purchased the property and dismantled the estate.

  • Chapel & Church: The very grand Grade I red brick and stuccoed early 19th century Catholic Chapel of the Virgin and Saint Everilda is extant and sits next to the House. Designed by the Roman architect Agostino Giorgioli, it was built by John Hayes and features statuary by Luigi Bozzoni. The Chapel has a tripartite entrance front with a single-bay narthex, a seven-bay nave with east transepts, and a single-bay apsidal sanctuary.
