What a fantastic building. How did they do it in that day and age. Is it still there?

The building is still very much there, in Dalton (not strictly Parbold, Lancs... I was born in an adjoining farmhouse way back in the 60s.

Where abouts is the hall, coming from Ashurst Beacon end? Currently looking at and trying to visit halls around Wigan and surrounding areas.

My dad was there with other lads.
So you have any information from your archives about Prior's Wood Hall?
