Horden Hall is a manor house built in the mid 17th century located at the north end of Horden in County Durham. The building is thought have been built for Sir John Conyers (died 1664) and incorporates 2-metre thick rear walls, likely from an earlier medieval tower house. Historical records related to the site include a licence to crenellate granted to Marmaduke fitz Geoffrey in 1260, and the Widow of William de Claxton received a licence for a private chapel in her "manor house at Horden" in 1411.[1] Horden Hall is a Grade II* listed building.
