A GREAT Hall which once functioned as a fort to Chepstow Castle is for sale for more than £1.1million.

The Itton Court's Great Hall, which is a Grade II* listed building, situated in Itton, Chepstow, and is on the market for £1,150,000. The property which has six bedrooms was the family home of a prominent Chepstow family from the 18th century until the 1950's.

Sir Edward Curre and his family lived at the property where the family crests can be still be found today in stained glass in the kitchen and the drawing room.

Henry Hodges, secretary of Chepstow Society, said: "The Curre's were a big local family - the foxhunt was named after them as it's called the Curre and Llangibby Hunts. Lady Augusta Curre who was Sir Edward's wife was master of the hunt and rode on many of the hunts.

"She was also the daughter of Crawshay Bailey, who was one of the great Welsh iron masters."

He added: "The building itself is quite impressive. The manor as it is now has 18th century battlements.

"At the end of the First World War it was used as a convalescent home for officers and 'limbless Tommy's."

The property has 1.5 acres of grounds and is still on the market.
