Many thanks to Warwick Hall for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation.
The Warwick Hall holds a rich historical background. Originally, it was occupied by the Warwick family, who maintained residency until the unmarried passing of Ann Warwick in 1774. The family, devout Catholics, received care and attention from Benedictine priests who resided within the hall. In 1828, the original hall underwent extensive reconstruction, resulting in its substantial transformation.However, tragedy struck in 1936 when a fire destroyed the original hall. In response, a new hall was constructed in the neo-Georgian architectural style by the esteemed firm John Laing & Son. This rebuilding project was commissioned by Colonel Guy Elwes, and the hall remained in the possession of the Elwes family until the passing of Mrs. Aileen Elwes, daughter of Charles Liddell, in 1996.In 1998, a notable acquisition took place when Vall Marriner, an American from Worcester, Mass, purchased Warwick Hall together with her second husband, Nick, an English accountant and avid angler and hunter. The estate encompasses a vast 260 acres and boasts various attractions, including pheasant shooting and two miles of privately owned trout and salmon fishing areas. Additionally, the estate features open fields, private woodlands, and other captivating natural landscapes.Originally comprising 14 bedrooms but with an insufficient number of bathrooms, Warwick Hall underwent renovations and now offers nine bedrooms and bathrooms, providing enhanced comfort and functionality.Constructed upon the foundations of an 18th-century residence that succumbed to fire in 1936, Warwick Hall exhibits a stone structure designed in the neo-Georgian style, accentuated with period details. The previous owners adorned the hall with an opulent Roman Catholic chapel, adorned with gold railings, walls draped in red silk, and lace-adorned windows.The previous owner resided in Warwick Hall until her passing at the remarkable age of 102. The hall's location is in close proximity to the River Eden, which originates from Black Fell Moss in the Lake District hills above Kirkby Stephen. Flowing northward for 84 miles, it eventually reaches the Solway Firth on the Scotland border. The river is highly regarded among fishermen for its pristine, fast-flowing waters, picturesque countryside surroundings, and, most importantly, the abundance of sport fish that migrate upstream from the sea. Fishing on the River Eden is a year-round activity, offering opportunities to catch salmon, wild brown trout, sea trout during spring, summer, and autumn. Additionally, grayling fishing is available throughout the winter season.
