The Broughton Hall Estate

Roger Tempest, owner of Broughton Hall near Skipton North Yorkshire asked Ben to create a representation of the heart of his Estate at a scale of 1:500. The model covers one square kilometre of rolling countryside, with over 1,000 trees a network of roads including the A59 diagonally bisecting the site, and dozens of buildings from small cottages to a reproduction of the splendid classical Broughton Hall itself. The entire Estate is run as a thriving business park and Ben’s model is hung vertically in a glass case on the wall of the Utopia café and conference space, designed by Sir Michael Hopkins.
