    In one of the bedrooms is a door hidden behind the wooden wall panelling, this is thought to have been a priests hide.

    As you enter the hall from the rear you are in this large hall and this is the fireplace and christmas tree you can see in the photo.

    The hall changed hands a few times over the years and ended up being bought by the local council. It has undergone major restoration including new timbers and roofing.

    Guided tours are available but you can walk round the hall on your own. There are quite a few rooms, the Great Hall, Ballroom, Banqueting Room, Chapel etc.

    High in the wall of the ballroom is a door which is now unreachable but it is thought that there was once a staircase here and that the door led to a long gallery which has since been demolished.

    The picture shows the stocks that were once used for offenders, these are at the rear of the hall where in actual fact is the entrance to the hall.

    On the death of William Davenport in 1869 the hall passed to John William Handley Davenport who then leased it to a Wakefield Christy. Christy was a member of a well known hatting firm in Stockport, for which the area was well known. There were quite a few hat works in Stockport, even the local football teams nickname is 'the hatters'.

    When the lease expired the contents of the house were then sold.

    From the late 14th century it was the home of the Davenports and was owned by them for over 500 years years. Obviously paid their mortgage off by then!

    The hall has parts of it that date back to the 14th century, and its also reported to be haunted!

    Set in 64 acres of beautiful parkland.
