The hall, a brick-built mansion erected late in Henry VIII's reign...incorporates parts of an earlier stone building, possibly a castle or fortified manor house. This earlier building, in existence by at least 1255, was surrounded by a moat, the remains of which were visible in 1868. The 'free-Chapel within the Castelle of Plashe', held by Sir William Surlande, is mentioned in the early C16. (Jackson 1988)
Plaish Hall is an H-shaped, two storied brick and stone manor house with gables and a Tudor front, "licensed" about 1520 but mostly built 1590. The hall has open timber roof and minstrels gallery (Listed Building Report 1949).
Plaish Hall is essentially a work of the later years of Henry VIII (1509-1547). Probably built on the site of an earlier house as the present south-west entrance was the front of an older stone house (Pevsner 1958)
"Plash Hall" was in existence in 1255. It was originally of stone, portions of which still exist at the back of the brick edifice forming the old front of the house (TSAHS 1878-9).
"Plaish Hall" (nameplate) is a large private residence of early 16th century date, incorporating on the south-west side the stone front of an earlier house. In good condition (F1 ASP 31-AUG-79).
A paper reassessing the structural history of the house. It seems that a late medieval stone house was largely rebuilt, perhaps in two stages in the late 16th century, when it was provided with a brick front. The previously ascribed date of c1540 for the rebuilding of this house is challenged on the basis that the Henrician ceiling in the south ground floor room of the east wing is in fact of a late 19th or early 20th century date (Mercer and Stamper 1989).
