Description: Hall Place is an early Georgian Grade II* listed town house built in 1736 adjacent to a 16thCentury Wall which relates to the Old Rectory and forms the eastern garden wall. The house was extended in 1818 when it became a school for ‘Sons of Noblemen and Gentlemen’. The church acquired it in 1867 as the new rectory at which time it underwent major renovations including a ‘Queen Anne Style’ roof. The gardens are to the south side of the house and originally extended down to a ha-ha from where one could view the Hall Barn Estate. The main elements of the garden have been preserved/restored and consist of a parterre, a long walk followed by a perambulation to the orchard and kitchen garden. The present owners have also added a natural swimming pond which relates to the orangery built in 2007 where the swimming area is bordered by many pond plants including rushes. Other features include a Bog Garden, a ‘green roof’ and a Japanese Garden. Hall Place Gardens are listed on the county register of gardens of particular historical interest. Live musical entertainment will be provided by NoteOrious.
