Our History

1831 -1916

Built in 1831, Lilleshall is the former home and hunting lodge of the Duke of Sutherland and stands in extensive, beautiful grounds overlooking the stunning Capability Brown inspired gardens.

Lilleshall was built with considerable assistance from the 2nd Duke of Sutherland’s wife, Duchess Harriet, who had an appreciation of architecture and landscape gardening. 

The Duchess made detailed notes of all the houses and gardens she visited and introduced many features into the family’s houses and estates.

Chester Road is through the “Golden Gates”, which are exact replicas of those adorning Buckingham Palace. The 70 foot high obelisk, visible from Chapters and standing on Lilleshall Hill, was built in 1833 in memory of the 1st Duke of Sutherland. 

1949 -1965

The plaque and photographs in the main entrance to the Hall commemorates the official opening performed by the then Princess Elizabeth on the 8th June 1951. Mr Jim Lane was appointed as the first warden and annual summer schools were held from 21st July until 8th September for many majorsports Governing Bodies. In the first year nineteen courses were held lasting from 7 to 14 days with training for a wide range of sports.

1966 -1998

It was Lilleshall’s connection with Association Football that brought the centre to the attention of the Nation. The England team trained for two weeks at Lilleshall prior to their success in World Cup of 1966. In 1967, when Sir Alfred Ramsey returned to the centre to unveil a plaque to commemorate his team’s stay and endorse the view that Lilleshall could justly claim some credit for England’s famous victory. This plaque today sits proudly on the wall of Queens Hall bar along with an autographed photograph of the successful squad.
