Monument details

HER Number:1230/1/1
Type of record:Archaeology
Name:Tabley Old Hall


The remains of Tabley Old Hall are a Scheduled Monument. The hall was built in 1380 to replace an earlier building. It was built on a peninsula into the mere that was separated from the main land by a channel to create a moated appearance. In the late 16th century various additions were made to the building. The house was further extended in brick around 1671 and other additions and alterations include a Chapel from the 17th century and a tower added in 1724. The Old Hall ceased to be the main seat of the family in the 18th century when the present Tabley House was built. Part of hall collapsed in 1927 and the building was subsequently abandoned and the chapel demolished. What survives is the shell of a 17th century house which contained the fine timber framed hall of 1380.
