Potternewton Hall, Potternewton Lane


Potternewton Hall, Potternewton Lane
Description:
Undated. Image shows a five bayed early Georgian Mansion built in the early 1700s by the Barker family. This was originally the site of Mauleverer's old seat. The Hall was demolished in 1935 to make way for housing development. Riviera Gardens, flat roofed white painted housing from the inter-war years, was built on the site of the hall and gardens. Immediately to the west of Potternewton Hall there was another substantial house called Newton Lodge which was demolished to make way for Newton Lodge Drive. In October 1935 G.F. Greenwood a York Antique Dealers offered for sale an 'old pannelled room from the Georgian Mansion Potternewton Hall c.1720'. The room was bought and reassembled at Sutton Park as a morning room.

Comment:
I used to own a house on Riviera Gardens, and the deeds showed that Potternewton Hall stood on the plots of land which became Newton Lodge Drive and Riviera Gardens. The building itself stood on Newton Lodge Drive as far as I could tell, and faced in the direction of the ginnel which runs between Riviera Gardens and St. Martin's Drive/St. Martin's Grove (which were market gardens in 1935, according to the plan on the deeds).
