Although Rudchester Hall appears to be a late 18th century building from the outside it includes large parts of a late 13th century hall. The south-east corner of the building includes the square 13th century tower. There may once have been another separate medieval building nearby. Parts of the later building were added in the 17th century. This is a Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
