Eslington Park, Northumberland

Eslington Park is a privately owned 18th-century mansion house west of Whittingham, Northumberland, and the family seat of Lord Ravensworth. It is a Grade II* listed building. Eslington, first mentioned in the reign of Edward III in 1335, was held in early times by a family who took that name. It later passed into the hands of the Hazelriggs, the Herons, and then the Collingwood’s, who lost all when George, the head of the family, was executed for treason in 1716.
