Rokeby Park is a fine Palladian mansion near the confluence of the River Tees and River Greta, at Barnard Castle. It has an unique collection of needlework paintings and an interesting late 18th Century print room.
The house and its park were the inspiration for Sir Walter Scott's famous poem 'Rokeby', JMW Turner's painting, 'The Meeting of the Waters' and John Sell Cotman's painting, 'Rokeby on the Greta'.
