Ash Hall
Ash Hall
Job Meigh (a local potter) became the owner of the Ash Estate on 27th of March 1837. Construction of the house must have begun almost immediately because the date 1837 appears on the rainwater heads on the front of the building.

1840 account of the hall: "The exterior is of hard stone, (gotten on the estate,) of an Ash colour, giving the building an air of antiquity which harmonizes with the stile (sic.) of the architecture, being that of the manor house or Tudor era, with oriel windows, surmounted with pediments or pointed gables. An elegant portico, composed of three Gothic arches, turreted and embattled, adorns the front. The adjoining lawn is tastefully laid out and planted; and altogether, we must characterize Ash Hall as one of the most beautiful seats we have had occasion to notice.
