Remains of hall folly. An 18th century summer house. Vis=16/12/1948 (worth). Vis=9/5/1978 (hankin, c. F. ). Hall pleasure house. Early maps including donn 1765, mark a "pleasure house" belonging to hall, a house and farm near to harford bridge. The site is still recognisable in the plantation known as "hall plantation", but is now all overgrown with trees, and only slight vestiges of the old stonework can be seen. No description of the building appears to have been found. The house was evidently an 18th century structure probably put up in the time hall was occupied by the chudleigh family. Vis=18/8/1977 (os). The building is in ruins.
