Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.
I was born in Hasketon, about a half mile from Thistleton Hall,it was a fine house.It was occupied by the American Air Force during the second world war and I'm sure it was never lived in after.
I think It was demolished in the 1950s.

i went to the nearby debach air museum and met an old boy there who remembered the hall. he said it was lived in by a grumpy scotsman and that it had been used during the war by many people including the americans but it was when it become a destination for east europeans who were sort of "misfits" that the interior was pulled apart and the wooden fittings used for firewood...mind you that was very commonly done...now it is in the middle of a copse quite dark with a pond and a place for rearing pheasant...of the hall there are only the first 8 rows of old bricks but it is totally overgrown and forlorn...you can walk to it on a footpath...
