Drawing of the hall layout by John Altham, who lived in the hall. Click on his drawing to see a larger version.
"Built in around 1866 by Gregory Wale who pulled down half the old Wale home leaving the remaining half as a lodge at the gate to the New Hall. The Hall was gutted by fire in 1928. Instead of rebuilding it, the Lodge was added to again to be the family home.
"Fiorella, Psyche and I lived in the Lodge from about 1916 but later lived in the Hall with our Great Aunt Isa Eden (nee Willis) until 1928. We all then lived in the enlarged lodge until 1939 when war broke out and the family moved to 12 Brookside, Cambridge. The Lodge was sold after the war. This was drawn by Barty (S.G.R.) Willis from near the river. He built South Lodge in the 1920s." John Altham - his plan of the hall drawn from memory can be seen on the right.
