Monument details

HER Number:2116/3
Type of record:Archaeology
Name:Newhall Manor

Summary

It is probable that this is the site of the manor of Newhall and which comprised a fortified manor house which incorporated a pele tower similar to that which survives at Doddington. Newhall is said to have been built around 1227 by the lords Audley. It is probable that the mill (CHER 2116/1/1) and hall are broadly contemporaneous. The site of the tower or maybe the tower itself may have been reused for a windmill (see CHER 2116/1/2).
