5/136 Fragment of wall
- approx. 30m north
of Leigh Hall Farmhouse

GV II


Fragment of wall. Probably C14 or C15. Roughly coursed and dressed
quartzite and limestone rubble on rough plinth. Approximately 2.5m
high and 5m long with right-angled turn to south-west. Forms part
of wall which formerly ran around inner edge of rectangular moated
house platform, c.80 x 30m. Apart from the upstanding fragment, only
the footings of the wall survive, including those of the gatehouse
near the present causewayed entrance on the north-west side. The moat
itself is well preserved on 3 sides and is water filled. The site
was abandoned in late 1660s, possibly after damage in the Civil War,
when the present Leigh Hall Farmhouse (q.v.) was built to replace it.
Several stones from the buildings, which formerly occupied the site,
have been reused in the boundary wall and farmbuildings (not included)
to south-east. Salop County Sites and Monuments Record; PRN 1611.
