Loversall Hall

Loversall, also known as Loversal, Hall was built in the late 1700s with additional alterations made in the early 1800s. The Hall passed through various families, but remained in the Skipwith family for many years. During the First World War, the Hall was opened as a hospital for wounded soldiers by (Sophia) Flora Skipwith. The Hall was sold at auction in 1967. The Hall is still standing and is currently used as office accommodation and a private residence.
