Old Hall: the old mansion façade, west facing
Old Hall: the old mansion fašade, west facing
On Christmas Day 2007, the west facade of Old Hall looked a trifle bedraggled in the rain. This section of a rambling building is the manor house of one of four manors in East Bergholt, rebuilt in the early C18th. The 3x5 scheme is original, with additions down the years, in red brick by the secular residents and later in white (now grey) brick by the Benedictine Nuns who occupied the building, then St Mary's Abbey, from 1857-1940. During the second world war, the army used (and abused) the buildings and later they were taken over by Franciscan Friars, until 1974. Since then, it has accommodated a co-ownership housing association (not hippy commune, please!) of around 42 members plus dependents who maintain the house and garden/farm around 68 acres of fields from the original estate. This is private land.
