Phases III to V - c 1150 to 1403

 

The first major settlement at the site that became known as Wood Hall was not constructed until the early medieval period. Lying approximately one mile north of the village of Womersley, beyond the village fields and in an area that would respond well to drainage, Wood Hall was an ideal site to choose as the focus for land clearance, farming (in this case stock rearing) and hunting.
