Changes to Wollaston Hall in the 1850s

1850s

Wollaston Hall was the home of William Blow Collis for about ten years, between 1848 and 1858. During his time there he made a number of changes to the fabric of the building, including repositioning the front door. At the rear a projecting wing was built, containing a kitchen and offices. Collis also commissioned several engravings of his revamped home, which, like this one, portray a somewhat idealised view of the building and its grounds.
