Summary

17th century timber-framed hall, moat and sandstone bridge. The construction of Holford Hall is ascribed to Lady Mary Cholmondeley, heiress of Christopher Holford of Holford. The remaining timber-framed building is Grade II* listed and originally formed part of a quadrangle. It lies within a waterlogged moat, accessed by a 17th century Grade II listed stone bridge. Archaeological investigation has revealed the location of the former 17th century north wing which collapsed in the 19th century.
