Built c.1500, Dalston Hall’s Pele Tower initially stood alone. Various additions and extensions and were made in subsequent years. In 1897, extensive refurbishment of the interior took place, together with the construction of the entrance side of the building, creating ‘a magnificent mansion surpassing perhaps even its ancient glories’, to quote a leading antiquarian of the day.
Our historic Grade II* listed Hall has a fascinating history. From secret love inscriptions, smoke signals from the towers, battles and a curious case of arsenic poisoning.. Dalston Hall has seen it all !
