Strelley Hall conceals a barrel-vaulted room in its south-west corner incorporating the ground floor of a medieval tower... It is uncertain whether or not the tower was a stand-alone structure, but the residence must have been an extensive one if the buttressed sandstone walls of the present outhouses were part of its outbuildings. ... It is likely that the tower was part of a fourteenth-century rebuilding. (Emery)

Gatehouse Comments

Recent excavations by James Wright has revealed a rock cut ditch 7m wide and greater than 5m deep. This work suggests a substantial complex with tower and associated buildings.
