Gresham Hall was built by Colonel Batt (hence the bat over the front door), between October 1907 and April 1908 using wooden scaffolding, labour and materials from the Gresham Estate, and the bricks were baked in a local kiln.

The present owner bought the property in the 1980s and the family grew up there, enjoying the beautiful estate to the full.
