History of Chesterton Hall, Chesterton Road

Chesterton Hall

Royal Commission Survey of Cambridge 1959: built in the second quarter of the 17th century on a L shaped plan with a small block in the re-entrant angle and an octagonal  tower on the NW angle of the N wing. …. Chesterton Hall though altered and much restored is of interest as a comparatively large work of the period when much brick building was going forward in Cambridge. … no original features remain inside.
