Named 'Park Hall'. (3)
Park Hall, a C17 house, was occupied by a daughter of Sir John Digby of Woodhouse Castle until 1736, when it was bought by John Hall. He also purchased the estate which came to be known as The Park, part of which was in the parish of Mansfield Woodhouse and part in Warsop. The estate remained in the Halls' possession until the death of the last member of the family, Willaim Welfitt Hall, in 1903. The hall was used as a youth hostel between the wars. After being requisitioned by the army during the second World War the house was left to fall into ruin. (4)
