CHINGLE HALL

DESCRIPTION + /

The moated site of Chingle Hall includes a slightly raised rectangular island measuring circa 44 metres x 40 metres upon which stands Chingle Hall, reputedly the most haunted house in Britain. A tree-lined waterlogged moat 7-9 metres wide flanks the west side and much of the south side of the island, extending circa 10 metres in a south westerly direction and the south west corner. The north arm of the moat is now formed by a shallow brook whilst the east arm has been infilled. The hall is approached across the moat's south arm by a brick built bridge with pitched stone copings. Chingle Hall appears to have been built in 1260 by Adam de Singleton and was originally named Singleton Hall. The present house, originally a farmhouse, dates to the early 17th century and was extended in the 19th century and altered in the 20th century. It is constructed from brick, now covered with white-painted roughcast, with a slate roof and is of an extended cruciform plan (19th century extension to the rear and a 20th century enlargement to the left), but was formerly of single-depth baffle-entry plan, probably of three bays.
