Churton Hall
not to be confused with Chirton Hall, Northumberland

Churton Hall is a country house in the parish of Churton by Farndon, Cheshire, England. The date of building is uncertain. There is a loose board carrying the date 1569 that, according to the authors of the Buildings of England series, may or may not date the house.[1] It is a half-timbered house built for the Barnston family, and was "heavily restored" in 1978–80.[2] Much of the timber framing has been replaced by brick at the rear of the house. The house is roofed in slate. It has two storeys, and its plan is E-shaped.[3] At each end of the building are gables with different designs.[2] The house has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building.[3]
