Jim my Great Grandparents (Charles and Martha Le Grice) use to live at Hempnalls Hall and I believe it fell into decline after they left. I have a photo of the hall from the early 1900s I will have to dig it out. I'm pleased it is now well cared for.

Visited the house today - 15th Jan 2015. House is in very poor state of repair. It appears that the landowner is in the process of dismantling the building before it becomes too unstable and falls.
