History

c 1720 In the early 17th Century (date not yet identified) a large house was built for the Wyborn family.
1912 The Gillett & Johnston tuning books refer to a new bell cast for Hull Place, Deal of 15" in C and 4lbs of tuning. No weight was given. It is assumed that it went into this clock turret which sits on top of one of the outbuildings to the main hall.
1915 The house was extended.
