THE LINEN HALL
The building known as the Linen Hall dates from the mid 1700s as indicated from historical records
and as evidenced from a lintel stone dated 1747 over an original doorway. The building's most
recent uses were as a two room cottage at the eastern end and a community hall at the western end.
Historically the building was used by the women of the village in the 1700s for creating items made
from linen that would itself have been woven by the villagers of Kingskettle on their cottage
handlooms. Sometime around 1800 one end of the building was adapted as a cottage with a new
stone frontage, new stone window surrounds and front door. New plans have been drawn up with
active Planning Consent (15/03510/FULL) for conversion of the building to form a four bedroom
house on two floors.
