Full description

Press cuttings and (S2) and architect's plans 1993 (S3) in file.
23 April 1980.

Visited by E. Rose (NAU).
Two-storey building of the size of a normal house rather than a hall. North façade in brick with string course between the stories. Seven bays, with the third and sixth bays from the west very narrow, a feature (S4) dates to 1700 to 1710. On the ground floor these narrow bays are doors, on the upper their windows are blocked up, one with a fire insurance plaque on the blocking (window tax?).
East gable wall of flint has small blocked windows of 17th century type. Two rear extensions, both late.
Apparently empty at time of visit.

Listing Grade II 1986 (S5) dates one of rear wings to 17th century, the other to 19th, says main house 17th century with 18th century refacing; notes two insurance plaques, says east gable raised, possible older core.
E. Rose (NAU) 26 October 1987.

(S6) states that the Hall was called Dawneys in 1742; Edward Dawney became rector in 1663 and the author connects it with him.
E. Rose (NLA), 13 October 2003.
