Mausoleum, east of Seaton Delaval Hall, Seaton Delaval, Seaton Valley - Northumberland (UA)

Mausoleum of 1766; the focal point of a walk to the east of the Hall, overlooking parkland to the south. The Hall was built 1718-29 by Vanbrugh, with early-C18 landscaping incorporating earlier and later features. The mausoleum is roofless and subject to graffiti and vandalism. Urgent works were funded by Historic England in 1994, but further works are required to the building and its setting.
