1/35 Remains of walls to
1.6.66 old hall grounds
Boundary walls of the vanished Cotes Hall, largely C16, ruinous. Large fragments
of wall forming a square enclosure c70 yards square. Various materials English
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.
Turned to form gateway in middle of NW face, and running down to river, suggesting
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.
