The hall was built in 1735 by Thomas Ivory, who also designed the Assembly House in Norwich, and was almost entirely rebuilt in the 1870s. Apart from the red brick cellars little of the 18th century house remains. The grounds of the house are now used as wildlife gardens which are open to the public.
