Beningbrough Hall


The National Trust





Beningbrough Hall is a Grade 1 listed building with surrounding gardens and grounds.  It is owned and maintained by the National Trust and includes several other buildings including a restaurant, shop and working farm.  Visitor numbers have been steadily increasing since the Hall was first opened and the anticipated trend is for this to continue, placing the existing services under ever increasing strain.

DTA were commissioned to undertake a feasibility study of the existing sewerage system and provide a solution to enable the Trust to overcome the current drainage issues and future proof the site; DTA visited site, carried out drainage investigations and provided 2No. solutions to suit the budget available.

A pumping station was installed and a rising main was constructed across farmland before discharging to the Yorkshire Water public sewer.  The route of the rising main was carefully monitored both from an archaeological point of view and to avoid trees and plant life. The works were successfully tendered and completed on time to the satisfaction of the National Trust.

Key Features

  • Upgrade and futureproofing of grade 1 listed building drainage infrastructure.
  • Five-fold increase in predicted visitor numbers over the coming years compared to original capacity.
