Old Hall, Rockcliffe

The Old Hall is located by the River Eden, north-east of the village of Rockcliffe in Cumbria. The house was built c.1730 on, or close to site of Rockcliffe Castle, which was demolished c.1682, when the first house was built for Rev Charles Usher. Usher had purchased Rockcliffe Castle and demesnes in 1682. Later, in 1809, the estate was sold to Robert Mounsey who built Castletown house - after which the house of c.1730 became known as "The Old Hall". It was used as an Auxiliary Hospital during the First World War. The Old Hall is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
