Calveley Old Hall, Chapel Lane, Handley - Cheshire West and Chester (UA)

House built 1684 for Lady Mary Calveley. Remodelled in 1818 for Sir Thomas Legh of Lyme. Some C20 alterations. Major causes for concern include the roof, brickwork and external joinery. There have been discussions with the owner about the most urgently needed repairs. Long term solution still required. Part of the associated grade II listed boundary walls have collapsed.
