Interesting building, looks a little odd with so smallish windows.They don't seem proportional to the wall size.

You wouldnt think this little gem would be in Ince, you would think it would be somewhere in the Wigan countryside

Nice photo Maurice, I know where the Hall is but I have never seen it.

This looks an interesting old house, what is the history of it?

Two houses there now, to the left lived the Hilton family, the children Tony and Lesley went to Rose Bridge then Secondary modern just round the corner from here. I knocked about with Tony in the school years up to 1971. Lovely low ceiling rooms very cosy house.

The Hall was built in 1345,and is a listed building,I remember it being up for sale,I believe it was for £20,000.

How many halls are there within a 7/8 mile radius of Wigan parish church?

My granddad's back gate led out onto the lane behind this. We called it Rossie's Farm. A little girl is supposed to have drowned in the moat. Yes Giovanni Irene does know it. How are you?

Maurice , do you / anybody know the catergory as regard the actual grade listing of this building?

I'm good Neil and thank you for asking. And you?
Glad spring is here and summer around the corner!

I've just looked on the imagesofengland website - it's listed Grade II.

Thanks Keith /David. Much appreciated. At least it has some protection for survival in the modern world we live in. What are we if we don't protect the buildings of our history?
