Hilton Hall


Hilton Hall is a house in Hilton Village in County Durham. The bulk of the house dates from the 16th century, with 17th and 18th century alterations.[1] However, the building also incorporates the remains of an earlier, medieval chapel, dedicated to the Blessed Catherine, which was built in 1219 by Thomas Baldor.[2] Hilton Hall is a Grade II* listed building. The stone gatepiers at the entrance to the Hall are early 18th century, and are Grade II listed.
