History

An C18 house built by the Grosvenor Estate and shown on the 1839 Tithe map. A rear wing was added in the late C19 and is first shown on the 1899 Ordnance Survey, by which time the house had been divided into 2 properties. The Grosvenor family owned an extensive estate and mineral rights in the Halkyn area. Halkyn Castle was built for the second Earl Grosvenor in 1824-7 and was used as an occasional residence. The Earl was later made Duke of Westminster.
