Middleton Hall, Gatehouse, Town Street (Middleton) (2 comments)
Colour image2005. This property was once the gatehouse to Middleton Hall, and is located in Town Street. St. Mary's Churchyard is off camera, right. Middleton Hall was the seat of the Brandling family until 1745. The stonebuilt gatehouse has been rendered in a light colour, but apart from that, has changed little since the 1920s, (An image from that era can also be viewed on the Leodis website).
