Welcome...

...to the Jacobean country seat of the founder of Maryland, George Calvert. A ‘Gothic’ wing was added in the 1820s and redesigned in 1887 by W.E. Nesfield.

This intriguing house is now furnished as a comfortable Victorian home with 17 rooms open to the public. The Hall is crowded with an eclectic mix of previous owners’ furniture, paintings, portraits and personalia, including many Arts and Crafts items. Among numerous original paintings from the 16th – 19th centuries are works by Beuckelaer, Carlevarijs, Kauffman and Watts.

Ornamental gardens, a productive Walled Garden, Woodland and Lakeside Walks and an award-winning Tea Room add to the enjoyment of your visit.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Charting Chipeling - 1,001 Archaeological Finds

Charting Chipeling - 1,001 Archaeological Finds The 2014 Heritage Lottery funded archaeology project has added to our knowledge of the area around Kiplin, which was recorded as ‘Chipeling’ in the Domesday survey of 1086.

Through the millennia before the township of Chipeling existed, the area was home to prehistoric hunter-gatherers, early farmers and invading Romans who founded the town of Catterick. Later there were Saxon kings and warriors, and medieval monks farmed the land at Kiplin and milled grain to support nearby Easby Abbey.

 In 2014, five excavation trenches produced over 1,000 small finds ranging from Mesolithic flints to Arts and Crafts pottery, indicating activity for thousands of years. Some of these objects will be displayed in the exhibition, which opens in April.
