Statement of Interest

The existence of such a substantial walled garden and ennobled principal elevation along with the name Renton Hall, suggest the flourishing state of the farm and tile works in the 19th century. The settlement/steading 1st appears on Armstrong's 1773 map of Haddingtonshire, then named

Hags. The cottage to NW by the steading is listed separately.
