1.6.66 old hall grounds


Boundary walls of the vanished Cotes Hall, largely C16, ruinous. Large fragments

bond brick work, limestone and granite rubble, with some ashlar work to internal
face. Plinth and chamfering in parts, angled brickwork on gradient in part.

possible former water gate. Further to NW an additional, smaller enclosure.

Cotes Hall had 26 hearths in hearth tax of 1666, but was destroyed by
some time in the C18. Nichols noted in 1800 that "large fragments of the
walls still remain.... the entire garden, fenced in with a good stone wall,
has been for some time let to gardeners". In 1877 Whites Directory noted
traces of the ancient hall, old terraces, a boat house and a fine old barn.
