Glentworth Hall
published by R R Champion on Thu, 02/05/2019 - 10:51

I have found a telegram dated May 1940 from Glentworth Hall, I am thinking this is or was a hotel in Weston S Mare, would any body know as to where it is, or even still about, I also have a story written by an ancestor as though he is looking out at the sea, he then gets picked up and taken to Banwell Church.  I am trying now to put the two together and then go to Weston to take some photos and put the two together.  Many Thanks for any help.

What a marvellous find!  Glentworth Hall Private Hotel was on Knightstone Road in Weston-super-Mare.  It overlooked what is now the Marine Lake but was sadly demolished and replaced by flats.  You should be able to see it here on an old map of Glentworth Bay  The Causeway at the bottom of the map leads to Knightstone Island.  Would love to hear more about your ancestor's activities in this area.
