About Us

Set amongst a stunning backdrop of 85 acres of land, with a rich history dating back to late 18th Century, Backworth Hall was once was the home of Ralph William Grey, a wealthy landowner and gentleman.

Backworth Hall is unique, set up as the welfare and recreational centre for the whole of the Backworth coal-mining district, which had over 3000 employees. The miners used to pay sixpence out of their wages to the Social Fund to keep the place going. 

The Hall stands alone and offers seclusion and privacy for your special occasion. The landscaped grounds offer the perfect setting with features and manicured lawns.

Backworth Hall is administered by dedicated Trustees, is a non-profit making charity and all funds are used to maintain the Hall and grounds for the benefit of the local community.
