Bessie Surtees House and its collection

Bessie Surtees House

Two sixteenth- and seventeenth-century merchants’ houses, one of which is a rare example of Jacobean domestic architecture. The house is perhaps best known as the scene of the elopement of Bessie Surtees and John Scott, who, in 1771, became Lord Chancellor of England.
