Red Hall

    House & Family History: Robert Colling of Long Newton purchased Red Hall in 1697 and the Colling family remained seated here for the next two centuries. Darlington Council purchased Red Hall in 1965 for £35,000 to be used as public housing, but the House and grounds were instead leased to a riding school. What was called "Darlington's first factory-made houses" were built on the grounds in 1967. Red Hall was demolished in 1984.
