Tolson Hall is located off Sharpes Lane, about ¼ mile west of Burneside. The Hall was originally built in 1638 for Thomas Tolson, a tobacco merchant. The Hall and west wing were substantially altered and extended in c.1800; the east wing was heightened and partly rebuilt during the late 19th century.[1] Tolson Hall is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
