History

Detailed History

Most of the old halls and manor houses in the Fenland parishes were pulled down in the early-19th century. Leverington Hall is one of the few survivors. The Hall dates to 1630 and stands opposite the church within a brick-walled forecourt with an entrance driveway through a pair of gate piers crowned with stone pineapple finials.
