Boundary belts to the south linking with Alkrington Woods which runs up to the River Irk forming the north western boundary. The hall is slightly to the north east of the site over looking a wooded area with a number of lakes or ponds with a second wooded area and park to the north.The house has been converted into flats and all the parkland has been developed for houses but much of the wooded areas remain.
