We award those houses that have completed exceptional restorations, have wonderful gardens, and work tirelessly to excel in educational innovation. And we work to further research into historic houses and their collections.
Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin , famous for his work on the Houses of Parliament, was involved with Ushaw's building expansion from the s to his death.

During our visit, we learned that the church was undergoing serious structural repairs to secure the opposing walls from bulging out due to damage inflicted by the careless installation of a bell-cote.

His eyes suggested it. They were of the Romany type—deep and brown as is the shadow of a palm. On the third finger of his left hand he wore a ring in which was set a goodly sized asteria sapphire, from the light of which Arabs would shrink lest they should suffer ill hap from the evil eye of its imprisoned devil. Small wonder that they sometimes whispered amongst themselves that he held communion with the jinns.

On several occasions, I have known him to disclose a remarkable gift of prescience. I was standing one day on the high mud-bank of Boulak, the port of Cairo where the Nile boats are moored, when Burton unexpectedly appeared. For some moments he was silent. You will be wrecked and lose some of your men and part of your equipment. But you will go on. And months hence you will return, brown in the face as your followers and in rags. And at the place where we now stand we shall meet again. As he foretold, it happened. My dahabeeah was wrecked near Gebel Tookh, with the loss by drowning of two sailors and most of my kit.
But I pursued my way southwards, nor was it until long after that I returned, in raiment threadbare, bronzed as a Bishareen—and as I climbed the high mud-bank at Boulak there stood Richard Burton, El Hajj! Thereafter, I was much with Burton, and together we visited the Fayoum, to the west of Cairo, with many an interesting happening attendant on the companionship of one so strong, strange and informative.
Though Burton could not change the dark tint of his sunburnt skin with the ease of a chameleon in its passing from anger to calm, he could vary his voice and gestures with an effect. I recall an evening walk with Burton in the outskirts of an Egyptian village. The sun was setting beyond the broken tomb of some forgotten saint and casting weird shadows as if water had been thrown in patches on the ground.
We were so engrossed in our conversation that we scarcely noticed a beggar step forth from the dust heaps of the village and crouch in the sand before us—a huddled bundle of rags fretfully demanding baksheesh. It was a most thorough and magnificent curse. He cursed my eating and my drinking, my waking and my sleeping, my living and my dying, my ancestors and my descendants. Burton and I stood motionless, listening. But I knew Burton too well to be surprised at the explosion which followed the close of the curse. Has't thou then forgotten what the Prophet said—how thy lips should be blistered and thy tongue be made hot for calling on the name of Allah in vain?
Dost thou not know that our brother here is a believer in the Book? Get thee down. Set thy forehead in the dust, and cry on Allah for mercy. And that beggar, astounded by the sudden torrent of Arabic poured out upon him, straightway sank down on his knees and wailed to Allah to erase from the divine records the purport of his curse. What were we chatting about? It is difficult to avoid coupling in one's mind the names of Richard Burton and T. Lawrence—the two men whose names will ever be associated with modern tales of Arabian adventure.
The Elijah-mantle of Burton fell so easily upon the Elisha-shoulders of Lawrence that any reference to the colorful life of either of them seems to blend, before our mental eyes, as do motion pictures, into the energies of the other. At Alexandria our principal work began. We visited the new harbour works, which had been constructed by Sir George Elliott, though his name did not appear, the nominal Directors being Greenshields and Company.
Here I became acquainted with Capt. Blomfield R. The Consul, Mr.
Cookson, was an old Constantinople friend. We had many conferences with the contractors, engineers, and merchants of the place, as well as with the above named people. I was invited by Cookson to meet Sir Richard Burton the traveller at dinner.

He was an interesting man but I was so disgusted with his language that I took an early opportunity of leaving the table. After nearly a fortnight, I went up on the 24th. During our stay at Trieste I visited the palace of Miramar, which was formerly the residence of the ill-fated Archduke Maximilian, before he became the Emperor of Mexico.
The most attractive thing to me in the palace was a portrait of the Empress Maria Theresa, a portrait worthy of the strong personality rendered especially interesting to me owing to my long residence in the neighbourhood of the Hungarian frontier.
