In 1910 the Stenigot Estate was sold by Richard and Robert Chatterton to Col. H.T. Fenwick, CMG, DSO, a partner in a Sunderland brewery and Liberal M.P. for the Houghton−le−Spring division of Durham from 1892 to 1895. Stenigot House was built for Col. Fenwick in 1911 − the architect was A.N. Prentice. The house, which probably stands on the site of an earlier house, is built into the side of Stenigot Hill and overlooks the Bain valley. The Dennis family have occupied Stenigot House since the late 1940´s. This picture may well have been taken soon after the house was completed
