Ince Hall 6570

Wigan, Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, England

Brief Description

Ince Hall had a house with garden and grounds on a roughly rectangular site. The house was to the northern end furthest from the road. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal lies to the west of the site. The long central drive with line of trees either side was described as a private avenue. There was a wooded area around the northern boundary, possibly as a screen against the Rose Bridge Colliery workings. There was also a kitchen garden, stables and two cottages on the site.

History

The site was still intact at the end of the 19th century but the whole area was becoming more heavily developed, especially for housing. The house has been demolished but the area of the site remains as playing fields.
