Then & Now

1935-2018. Cliffe Park Hall, original photograph taken two years after the hall had officially opened as a youth hostel, 124 years after its construction as a private manor. Despite it's glory days having well and truly passed, it continued to serve as a hostel until the late 60's when it returned to private ownership and fell into steady decline. Only in the past decade have new owners acquired the site with the hope of restoring its former grandeur. Good luck to them!
