Woodheys Hall 6495

Trafford, Greater Manchester, England, Greater Manchester

Brief Description

Woodheys Hall had a house in an irregularly-shaped site. Like other sites in this area, it was probably developed on agricultural land in the mid-19th-century. There were open fields on all sides of the site with the Sinderland Brook to the south. There was an entrance from The Drive through a thickly-wooded area opening out to a circular lawn planted with individual trees. There were productive gardens to the rear of the site. By the late-19th-century the site had been extended to incorporate the neighbouring fields to the north-east as parkland. The site is now lost, and the area has been built over.
