Withington hall Chesh REVIVALHERITAGE revival heritage

The original Withington Hall on this site, shown here, was made up of 2 earlier C18th century buildings. The larger of these was stuccoed and faced the eastern open parkland. It was built for John Baskervyle Glegg who lived in the older brick farmhouse to the west, which became the service wing. This view is from the SW. The main entrance front is around the corner on the right. The hall was demolished in 1963 and replaced by another smaller building. This in turn has since been demolished and replaced by a much larger and grander Georgian style hall, arguably the finest building on the site to date.
