Cusworth Hall is an imposing 18th century country house set in extensive landscaped parklands, once home to the Battie-Wrightson family. The Grade 1 listed house is deemed a site of special interest due to the preservation of all elements of a Georgian country house.

It is home to the Museum of South Yorkshire Life which illustrates the changing home, work and social life of people and communities across the region in the last 250 years. Restoration has begun on the Hall and magnificent parkland including a Victorian walled garden, shrubbery walk and Lady Isabella's rose garden. In 2003 The Heritage Lottery Fund announced a grant towards the major restoration programme for Cusworth Hall and Park. The restoration programme aims to repair the main hall, kitchen block, outbuildings, bothy and gatehouse, as well as the park, its lakes, paths, planting schemes and car park.

All change at Cusworth Hall, the Museum of South Yorkshire Life. The Museum and Park is undergoing major restoration work over the next 2 years; the Hall will close to the public on 28th March 2005, and re-open at the end of 2006. The parkland will remain open, as will the Tea Room. .
