Brief Description

Irwell House has a house with park bounded by the River Irwell to the west and Carr Clough to the east. There were entrance lodges to the north and south of the site. The northern lodge is marked as Bridge Lodge. This is an irregular site, with the house in a roughly central position facing south. The gardens or grounds lie to the north and east of the house leading down to the river bank. The site is cut through on the eastern side by a stream feeding two large lakes. The building has been demolished and the whole site is now part of Lower Kersal playing fields.
