Belford Hall was built in 1754-56 by James Paine for Abraham Dixon. It is in the Palladian style. The wings and the rear entrance were added in 1818. The army occupied the house during World War II and huts were built in the grounds. The house was unoccupied for a long period following the end of the war. It was only restored in the 1980s when it was divided into flats. It is a Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
