The present Manor House dates from 1695 and over the years the house has been continually adapted to meet the needs of modern living. The current ownership dates back to 1958 when the farm was purchased by Albert Hall – the site is still referred to by the Post Office as Albert Halls, The Village, Strensall. At the time of purchase the house was in a very poor state of repair and took two years of restoration before his family could move in during 1960. For the 20 years following their arrival it was run as a dairy farm with a 40 strong herd of milking cows. More buildings were constructed in 1975 to house calves. Calf production continued to grow and further buildings were adding in the following 10 years. Following the BSE outbreak in 1996 the farm began to concentrate on beef production. The low height calf sheds were then no longer suitable and stood empty for the following 3 years. The sheds then suffered significant storm damage in 1999 and the decision was taken to demolish them. The land on which they stood was then put back into the adjacent field. This land is now largely outside of the farm curtilage. (2009 Local History Group Information)
