The Kelmarsh Hall Estate is an agricultural landscape covering over 3,000 acres made up of a mix of arable cropland with pasture, woodlands and parkland. Farm land is the largest land use type and is managed by tenant farmers. Located in the heart of the Northants countryside, Kelmarsh Hall was built is 1732 and is now in the care of a charitable trust, charged with maintaining it in perpetuity for the benefit of the nation. Built for the Hanbury family by virtuoso architect, James Gibbs and builder, Francis Smith of Warwick, Kelmarsh Hall was praised by historian Nikolaus Pevsner as, “a perfect, extremely reticent design, done in an impeccable taste.”
Much of the parkland lies above a deserted medieval village and as such is a Scheduled ancient monument. It is grazed by a herd of British White cattle, descendents of the herd established by the Lancaster family in 1903.
The surronding countryside and woodland area of the Estate is now used for various outdoor pursuits including off-road driving, fairs, archery, clay pigeon shooting, quad bike trails and much more.
