Mere Old Hall has an associated park and lawn garden. Features include an ancient oak tree, an avenue of lime and chestnut trees and a small rock garden and fish pool.
The Brooke family bought the Hall and land surrounding it in 1652.
The house was built in the late 17th century. It was remodelled between 1809 and 1815, tand again in 1834.
The family moved to Mere New Hall which was built in 1836, and Mere Old Hall was made smaller following their move.
During the 19th century the house was let to Manchester Merchants and Manufacturers.
The Brooke family moved back to Mere Old Hall in 1914 because the new hall had become too big. It remained in the family until 1994 when it was sold into private ownership.
