Arthington Hall Convalescent Hospital, postcard (Arthington) (1 comment)
Black & White imagec1954. Postcard view of Arthington Hall on Arthington Lane. This country residence, mostly an early to mid 18th century rebuilding of an earlier house, was the home of the Sheepshanks family from 1830 onwards. It was used as a convalescent hospital during the Second World War and for some time after, as on this postcard which bears a postmark of 1954, but has since been reverted to a residence. It is now a Grade II listed building.

Arthington Nunnery (Arthington)
Black & White imageUndated, Situated on Arthington Lane, it is believed that this Nunnery was founded by Peter de Arthington about 1150. It was a small establishment with usually around ten nuns. At the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries, Elizabeth Hall, the prioress received a pension of £35. Nine other nuns were offered much smaller amounts. The building became a home and the land around the farm. TB 15851B is on the house, thought to be the initials of Thomas Briggs and his wife who were early owners.
