Wall Hall, originally known as Aldenham Abbey, is a country house at Aldenham in Hertfordshire.

History

The house, which was built in the gothic style[1] for George Woodford Thelluson, a wealthy banker, was completed in 1802.[2] It was then acquired by Admiral Sir Charles Pole, 1st Baronet in 1812.[3] The house passed to William Stuart, Pole's son-in-law, and then remained in the Stuart family until 1910 when it became the property of the banker J. P. Morgan, Jr..[4]

After use during the Second World War as a home for Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr., the United States ambassador, the house became a teacher training college.[2] It was later used as a residence by the University of Hertfordshire until 2003[5] after which it was re-developed into luxury flats.[1]
