Netherby Hall, Longtown Cumbria is an outstanding grade II* mansion house, steeped in history from the Roman times to the modern day.
Centred around a 16th Century pele tower, Netherby Hall has been developed over the centuries with later additions in the 17th, 18th and 19th Century. The Hall is built on the site of a Roman fort known as ”Castra Exploratorum” and it is believed that some sections of the house have been built using some of the fort stones.
The house stands in 36 acres of parklands with extensive lawns, a Victorian pleasure garden and a walled garden covering just over an acre.

A History of Netherby Hall
If settlements could talk, Netherby Hall would have a fascinating story to tell - records show it has been occupied for at least 2,000 years. By AD80 the Romans were probably using the site as a base but it was not uncommon for the forces of the greatest empire in the world at the time, to take over places long used by local people.
