Full Description

Stanton Hall Nursing Home, off Main Street, Stanton by Dale, a mid 18th century building. Built between c1770 and 1880, the original house was three storeys, and of three by three bays. It was recorded that this was built on the site of an earlier late 13th century '…capital messuage there of Hugh de Muschamp who was granted the estate in c1272.' In 1830 a three bay extension was added on the west, with another two storey and two bay extension added later onto that same side. Later in c1880 a four bay extension of two storeys was added, while previous extensions were altered in their appearance.
