Brief description of site

Pitchford Hall has the remnants of a landscape park and woodland. These enclose the gardens of 1.5 hectares. Other features include Roman and Victorian baths, and a tree-house which probably dates back to the 17th century. The site is in split private ownership after a failed attempt to save the hall.

Brief history of site

Pitchford Hall was built between 1560 and 1570 for Adam Ottley. A large park was present by 1596. In 1807, the site passed to Charles Jenkinson, later Earl of Liverpool, under whom the present park was created.
