Ingarsby Old Hall (Ingarsby)

Ingarsby Old Hall is the surviving manor house in the otherwise Deserted Village of Ingarsby in Leicestershire.

It stands beside the minor road that leads from Houghton-on-the-Hill to Hungarton.

In the 14th century, the building on the site became the moated grange of Leicester Abbey, which was responsible for the depopulation of the village.

Today, the hall consists of two ranges at right angles to each other, and is surrounded on the three sides by a moat.

One of the ranges was built in the mid 17th century, while the other, known as the Old Chapel, is believed to include what is left of the 15th century grange.
