More information : (SD 43928444) Nether Hall (NAT) (1)

Nether Hall, 800 yards E.N.E. of the church, was built probably
early in the 16th century. The N. wing is a 17th-century addition.
The house retains some 16th and 17th-century windows, the latter
with solid frames. Inside the building, the original block has an
open timbered ceiling of heavy beams. In the thickness of the N. wall
is a stone staircase with a garde-robe at the top. There are some
17th-century doors. The original roof of the main block is of
three bays, with king-post trusses against the end walls; the
intermediate trusses have tie-beams and collars with curved braces
below and king-posts above. The N. wing has a crutch-truss of late
character. (2)
