Woodend has a unique and fascinating history. The original site comprises a Grade ll* listed house, built in 1835 for a civil engineer called George Knowles. The house overlooks the English Heritage-registered Valley Gardens below, and onwards to the sea, in Scarborough’s beautiful South Bay.
The Sitwell family bought the house in 1870 and it was in the Sitwell Library that Sergeant Parsons presented to the audience made up of local residents who had brought tickets to enjoy this theatrical historical experience.
Perfect for the entire family!
