Notes about this historic site

1 Little Lawford Hall appears to have been built temp. Henry VII (1489-1505), with additions at the time of James I and early 18th century.
2 The house was pulled down c1790, and what seems to have happened is that the stables were then made habitable. They have a date 1604, but the details look c1800.
3 In 1790 the hall, which stood directly opposite the existing mill, was demolished together with a domestic chapel and nothing remains except the stabling – which is a very substantial 15th century building restored in 1604. This has been named Little Lawford Hall for at least 40 years. The site of the original hall is marked by disturbed foundations at the above grid reference.
