The Crewe estate was purchased in the late-16th-century by Sir Randulph Crewe. Crewe Hall was built in the early-17th-century and was greatly enlarged around 1800. The landscape park was created during the 18th century. Formal gardens were added round the house in the 19th century. The house was refurbished in the late-19th-century.
