Shotton Hall Wedding Photography Durham North East

Shotton Hall is a fabulous venue in Peterlee, Durham in the North east.  A Grade II listed building and formerly a mansion house it is now operated by Peterlee Town Council as conference centre and wedding venue.

The Manor of Shotton, near Peterlee, Durham, was owned by the Thompson family. In 1756 the Thompson heiress, Elizabeth, married Charles Brandling and they commissioned the building of a new mansion to replace the existing manor house.

The Hall was enlarged and improved in about 1820 but the Shotton estate was sold by the Brandlings in 1850 to Shotton Coal Company. The Hall was occupied by the Burdon family and later by a series of tenants. It fell into a state of neglect and disrepair.

In 1949 the Hall was occupied by the Peterlee Development Corporation and in 1984 was acquired by the Peterlee Town Council who restored the property for their own occupation.

Below are a small sample of wedding photographs taken by Diamond Photography at Shotton Hall…
