Arch Hall, Wilkinstown (1)
This early C18 Georgian house, close to the Yellow River a mile or so southwest of Wilkinstown, is the village's most historic building. Now ruined, it is but a fragmentary shell of what it used to be, although the facade of three storey cylindrical turret-like bows still manages to impress. It was probably built in the 1730s, and the architect is thought to have been Sir Edward Lovett Pearce, or his assistant and successor Richard Castle. There doesn't appear to be a NIAH or Landed Estate record of this property.
