Middleton Hall, a mile north of the village of the same name, dates from the late 14th century and was a fortified manor house. The habitable part is now a farmhouse. The site is a scheduled monument and grade 2 listed building and as such is protected by law. Middleton hall by Matthew Emmott. It is an architectural mix of several centuries. The 14th century part consisted of north and south ranges. In the 15th century two courts with thick walls were added. Part of the south range is modern. An archway above a former gatehouse in the western court can be seen. A 16th century stable still stands in the western court. In the 16th century, part of the hall was demolished to make it smaller. Still surviving from the past are two 15th century windows, original screen passage doorways, and a 16th century projection with a stair on the east side. In the south wing are a chimney stack, 16th century windows, and a 17th century window. The hall is in private ownership and not open to the public.
