Dalham Hall

Main article: Dalham Hall

Dalham Hall stands to the north of the village. In 1901 the estate of Dalham Hall was bought by Cecil Rhodes. After he died in 1902 without taking possession, his brother Colonel Francis William Rhodes became the owner, and erected the village hall in his brother's memory.[1]

Dalham Hall and its associated stud are now owned by the ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.[2]
