Sarah Robson has been Markenfield’s Administrator since 2004, which by her calculations is about three years… She is the Hall’s sole member of staff, acting as Wedding Co-ordinator, Group Bookings Organiser, Visitor Services Manager, Archivist, Curator and PA to the family. Oh yes – and she also serves cake to guided tours!
“I have always had a passion for historic artefacts – stained glass, stone circles, ruined buildings; the list is endless. I studied at the University College of Ripon & York St John, and came away with a 2:1 BA Hons in Environmental, Leisure and Heritage Management. Something kept me in Ripon after my studies – although I never quite knew what – and I have lived in the area ever since.
