Hall with associated fishponds, allegedly built on the foundations of a Norman castle (Mee). (Derbyshire HER)

Country house, demolished probably in the mid 1920's. Built in the late 17th century with 18th, late 19th and early 20th century alterations. Built of stone with a profusion of Dutch gables. (PastScape)

Gatehouse Comments

Whilst it is entirely probably the Hall is built on the site of a Norman and Saxon manorial centre is there any actual evidence to suggest this a castle? Indeed is there any evidence of a fortified site of any type (i.e. a moat)?
