The Path to Sewerby Hall and Gardens (1930s)

The modern view has less trees than the 1930s, when this photograph was taken. The trees flanking the roadway to the Hall were planted in the 19th century to create the effect of a wooded glade. They also hid the House from the view of visitors, giving the impression that the approach was longer than it actually was and creating an imposing reveal at the end of the path.
