Kirkleatham, TS10 5NW
Walk closer to this point to reveal a question.
Welcome to Kirkleatham. The name of the village comes from the old Norse kirk (church) and hlíð (slopes) - iterally "churchslopes". It's believed a church and settlement here dates back to the 9th Century. The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1066.
The building known today as the Kirkleatham Hall Museum was originally The Free School at Kirkleatham (between 1709 and 1869). There was once another Kirkleatham Hall that predated this beautiful building which you'll discover more about on this trail.
St Cuthbert's Church was built in 1763. It's a Grade I listed building and is consideered to be one of the best examples of Georgian architecture.
Esther Cleveland (1893 – 1980) was the daughter of American president Grover Cleveland. Esther is the only child of a President to have been born in the White House. She married Captain William Bosanquet in 1918 and they lived at Kirkleatham Hall. Photo credit: Hidden Teesside / US Newspaper, 1934
Did you know the gates of St Cuthberts are a listed building in their own right? The gate columns feature a skull and crossbones topped with a Roman oil lamp. The nearby mounting steps (used to mount horses) date from around 1763
This site was once home to Kirkleatham Hall, the 80 room seat of the Newcomen Family built in 1625. Unfortunately the building was demolished in the 1950s to make way for the school, only the gateposts and stables remain. Photo credit: Hidden Teesside.
The impressive stable block was significant in the North-East's horse-racing history and even housed racehorses such as The Flying Dutchman. Sadly the building was severely damaged by fire in 2013. Photo Credit: Teesside Gazette.
The Toasting Gate (dating from around 1770) was constructed as a garden feature for Charles Turner by prolific British architect John Carr. The origins of the name 'Toasting Gate' are unknown.
This bastion, designed by James Gibbs, was one of many garden features of Kirkleatham Hall. Unfortunately most are now lost, including a Pavilion Temple (also by Gibbs) and a Pigeon Cote by John Carr. Credit/Reference: Hidden Teesside
The Turner Mausoleum was designed by James Gibbs and built by Cholmley Turner in 1740. The Mausoleum was in memory of Marwood William Turner, Cholmley's son, who died while embarking on a the ‘Grand Tour’ of Europe at the age of 21. It's believed the cause of death was from typhus or cholera.
Work on the walled garden began in 2018. The Grade II-listed garden boasts a maze, a restaurant, and training facilities.
The almshouses (also known as a poorhouse or hospital) was founded in 1676 for "10 elderly men, 10 elderly women and up to 20 orphaned boys and girls.". The word ‘hospital’ is used in the old-fashioned sense, meaning a place offering hospitality.
Did you know that there's a circular maze at Kirkleatham Park too, just left of the car park?
