East Shaftoe Hall

  • Description

    "Keys to the Past Web Site: A late 13th or 14th century tower forms the earliest part of East Shaftoe Hall. It stands at the west end of a 16th century house which has 17th and 18th century alterations. The tower has walls up to 1.3m thick and in the basement there is a barrel vault. The early 16th century house seems to have been altered later that century into an 'H' strong house. In the 17th century it was altered again and became a more conventional house, and in the 18th century quite drastic alterations were made. These entailed reducing the height in some areas and heightening others and replacing all the mullioned windows with sash windows." Photo by Les Hull, 2005.
