• Description

    "Lee Hall has been described as a probable Bastle, and also as a probable Pele Tower. There are masonry ruins/remnants remains....A pleasant early eighteenth century house standing close to the River North Tyne betwwen its confluences with the River Rede and the Houxty Burn. It is the result of a radical transformation carried out in the seventeenth century on a strong house, bits of which are still evident at the back of the building. In 1620 this was termed a 'capital messuage'; the earlier structure had housed people since at least the thirteenth century. (Dodds 1999)..."
