The ancestral seat of the Sheffields (Samantha Cameron's family), the current Normanby Hall was built in the 1820s. This social history records its role in local industry and its use as a military hospital and personnel base in the First and Second World Wars. The tales of the resident family, guests and staff include that of the charismatic Lady Grosvenor, who astonished servants by arriving in a gypsy caravan.
