In the 1820′s Sir Robert Sheffield decided to demolish the existing house at Normanby and re built the house that stands before us to enjoy today.  The house was designed Sir Robert Smike and was built between 1825 and 1830. The house was extended and altered to designs by Walter Brierley between 1906 and 1908 to complete the grand house that is still the focus to Normanby Hall Country Park.
