Geocache Description:

St James, Halloughton

ST JAMES, HALLOUGHTON


Halloughton is a small village in Nottinghamshire, located 9 miles west of Newark-on-Trent and is within the civil parish of Southwell.

The church was originally built in the 13th Century, with the current church being re-built in 1879-82.

St James' is Grade II listed.

An ancient mansion in the village is supposed to have been the dwelling of a religious fraternity, belonging to Thurgarton Priory, with the establishment being solely for females. In taking up its kitchen floor some years ago, the entrance to a subterranean passage was discovered, which was traced a considerable length. There is an old tradition that it had a communication running to Thurgarton.

It is further remarkable, that in taking down a stack of chimneys in the same house, a large recess in the middle was uncovered, in which many human skeletons were found, principally those of children.

The largest building in the village is Halloughton Manor House, a 13th century prebendal house of the college of Southwell. Its medieval tower house is now incorporated into a late 18th century farmhouse
