On today’s walk (26th February) around the Holmesfield halls several people were interested in more information about the halls. Here are the links I looked up. Most of them are from a site about British Listed Buildings and it may be useful for other information as well.

All the halls are grade II listed. The barn at Barlow Woodseats is very interesting and I particularly like the hall and farm at Cartledge with its stone water spouts to drain the roof and the geometric box hedge.
