Sprotbrough Hall

Sprotbrough Hall was built in the 17th century for Sir Godfrey Copley, a scientist and engineer, and remained in the family until the 1920s. During the First World War, the heir to the estate, Redvers Bewicke-Copley, was killed in action. The Hall was sold and demolished soon after the First World War and a housing estate was built on the land.
