Soulby Hall

Soulby Hall

Photographed by accident (if that's possible!!) on a visit to Soulby to photograph St Lukes (now flats) it's fortuitous that I did managed to grab this distant snap of the hall. Listed in Denis R. Perriam's and John Robinson's Medieval Fortified Buildings of Cumbria as a "Hall site" it's probably not the case that there was a fortified building here, even before the house shown here. 

There are no ruins within the grounds of the present hall, no earthworks and sign of a moat (infilled or other) It is however a handsome addition to this collection of old buildings, displaying a reset date stone of 1682 above the door.
