In 1869, Josephine Bowes laid the foundation stone for the Bowes Museum in Teesdale. It opened in 1892 but some areas remained unfinished. The ballroom never saw the parties it was intended for becoming temporary storage for paintings. In 2008 works began to turn the ballroom into an archive for paintings, prints and books. A Wideyed exhibition curated by Human Endeavour.
