Summary

The site of Old Hall, a medieval and later manor house with a 12th century chapel and two ponds. The hall was demolished in the mid 19th century when the ponds were enlarged into the present lake and the chapel removed to a new site. Some foundations are reported to be visible today, and much of the garden wall at the new hall is probably from the walling of the old house.
