Deighton Hall on site of (NAT) Manor House (NR) (1-2)

Deighton Hall, a grade II 18th century house with a 16/17th
century window in the rear elevation. Remains of moat. (3)

Only two arms of the moat survive, the W, which is water-filled
and the N, which is dry. The other two sides have been
deliberately filled in in recent years. Published survey (25')
revised.

Deighton Hall, in use as a farmhouse, is not outstanding. The
rear window, purported to be of 16/17th century date by the
DOE, has a heavy, moulded timber frame, which is incorporated in
the 18th century fabric of the house. (4)

The moat described by the previous authorities was seen as an earthwork on air photographs. (5)
