Peplow Hall was the family seat of the Staniers of Peplow. Whilst little is known of the history of Peplow Hall, Lord Newborough has been able to tell me the following: it is believed the Hall was built in 1725, possibly by a Mr. Piggott, a slave trader from Liverpool. The Hall was enlarged in 1886. Originally a 7 by 6 bay of brick with a big parapet. The house has a fine stair case with three fine balusters to a tread. Fine 18 c. wrought-iron gates by Jones of Wrexham. All the Victorian additions were removed in the 1930's and the house reduced to its original size. These extensive alterations took place over a period of about 6 years.
