Eaton Hall

The Eaton Hall estate was part of lands owned by the Brereton family in the sixteenth century which passed to William Rode in the seventeenth century and then at the end of the seventeenth century the estate came under the ownership of the Antrobus family.

Much of the land in and around the village has been owned by the Eaton Hall estate belonging to the Antrobus family. The last Eaton Hall was built in the Victorian gothic style in 1828 although the original eighteenth century stable block had been retained. The hall and later the stable block were demolished at the end of the last century to make way for the sand quarry.
