Tyntersfield 6491

Trafford, Greater Manchester, England, Greater Manchester

Brief Description

This was a roughly rectangular site, with the house to the western edge furthest from the road. There was a lawned area to the front with productive gardens to the rear of the house. The site is now lost. The area has been built over and the garden absorbed into the playing grounds of a school.

History

Tyntersfield had a detached brick house with gardens and grounds developed on agricultural land by Mr Samuel Brooks, a businessman and brewer, in 1850. By the early-20th-century the layout of the site had been changed to a less formal design with areas of the lawn to the front of the house shaped into a curvilinear pattern.
