SMR record reads '... at a farm called "Hall Green", there are traces of buildings showing on an aerial photograph which may be those of the ancient fortified manor house.' (Perriam and Robinson)

the manor was held of the fee of Workington by the Harrington (or 'Haverington') family in the 13th and 14th centuries. It descended by marriage to Henry Grey, duke of Suffolk, executed 1554. In 1556/7 the Crown granted Harrington to Henry Curwen of Workington. (Cumbria County History Trust)

Gatehouse Comments

The site is now built over by modern housing. Harrington was heavily industrialised in the 19th century with the medieval landscape much altered. This is certainly possible as the the site of the Harrington's manor house and in this area that house is likely to have had some martial features although the actual form is not known.
