Wentworth Castle, near Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England, UK, was the seat of the recreated Earls of Strafford. The house called Stainborough was renamed at some point by Thomas Wentworth, Lord Raby, created Earl of Strafford in 1711. It was still Stainborough in Jan Kip’s engraved bird’s-eye view of parterres and avenues, 1714, and in the first edition of Vitruvius Britannicus, 1715. The original name of Stainborough Hall remains now, in the form of Stainborough Castle, a sham ruin constructed as a garden folly.

The house was constructed in two great campaigns, by two earls, in remarkably different styles, each time under unusual circumstances, with handsome results. The castle’s gardens were restored in the early 21st century, and are open to visitors.
