SKELSMERGH HALL

DESCRIPTION + /

Tower house, probably built in 1425, with a late 16th century wing to the south and an early 17th century wing to the east. The tower, now an outbuilding, is three storeyed externally, but has no internal second storey. The remainder of the house has been divided to form two dwellings.

An antiquarian source had identified this as the site of the Chapel of St John the Baptist and its burial ground. Recent evidence suggests, however, that the location of the chapel was, in fact, further north.
