Record Details

NHER Number:4165
Type of record:Building
Name:Little Palgrave Hall


The Hall dates to around the 17th century with later 18th and 19th century additions and refurbishments. The three-bay façade is recessed in the centre and a columned porch is located here. The building is notable because a large quantity of medieval stonework, possibly from Castleacre Priory, has been incorporated in the fabric. Two chimneystacks exist to the rear of the property and the interior features a fine 19th century staircase.
