Brief Description

Mottram Old Hall has a house set in a triangular-shaped park with Coach Road forming the north-east boundary and Old Hall Lane the south-east. There are fields to the south-west, with a tree-lined drive joining the hall to Old Road. The house is set at the apex of the triangle. There is a possible coach house and a possible pleasure garden. A tree belt separates the house area from the main park which has two small woodland areas. Off the drive is a mausoleum. The house still sits in the small park whilst the larger park is still shown as open space.
