Imposing and stately, though partly demolished, Ilam Hall is a building steeped in history and enclosed in beautiful parkland. The only remnants of the original Tudor Hall are the stable blocks which house a fine selection of gifts and fantastic food in the delightful tea-rooms.
Originally belonging to a Benedictine Abbey, Ilam was sold to the Port family during the dissolution of the monastries under Henry VIII.
After 250 years in the family, it was sold to David Pike-Watts. On his death, the estate passed to his daughter who married a wealthy industrialist. Her husband had the hall re-designed by the architect John Trubshawe, to be a more fashionable Gothic building with ornamental chimneys and high towers. In 1927, the hall was converted into a restaurant by a Mr Blackhouse, but was closed by the 1930's.
