    All credit goes to diluted from Derelict Places for this place. He called me this morning with a chance at a good site, and here it is. Here's what history I can find. Quite important in it's time, and it was planned to be restored. Last plans were from 2006, but we found drawings and plans from back in 1990!

    "Built around 1780, the Hall was originally home to the Attwood family, influential local ironmasters during the industrial development of this part of the Black Country.

    Over its 200-year history, the Hall has passed through various owners and experienced numerous minor alterations. Over recent years it has been unoccupied whilst Sandwell Council have carried out essential maintenance and restoration work, and have looked to identify a new future for the building.

    In 2002 the West Midlands Historic Buildings Trust was invited to commission a feasibility study. This report concluded that the only viable future is to return the Hall to its original residential use, and recommended dividing what was a single residence into five apartments. Even then, subsequent professional advice and analysis has shown that the ongoing maintenance of the estate is only sustainable by adding a sympathetic new wing of a further six apartments."
