The Old Hall at Tatton Park

If Tatton Park is a jewel in the crown of Cheshire, then the Old Hall is its hidden gem. The building stands near the disappeared Tatton village, whose humps and hollows show where houses once stood.

Tatton Park Old Hall brief history

 
The site is a `Scheduled Ancient Monument' considered an area of significant historical and archaeological importance in the North West.
 
Once the heart of the estate, Tatton Park's Old Hall survives as its oldest building, and a costumed guided tour takes you on an evocative journey through its history as a dwelling place - from manor house to humble cottages. 
 
Built at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries, the single-storey great hall, dimly lit by tallow candle and flickering fire, still retains the shadowy atmosphere of Tudor times.
 

Tatton Park's Old Hall today

 
As featured on TV's Most Haunted, the Old Hall is the venue for historical re-enactments and is host to many of Tatton Park's events such as the busy travelling Medieval Fayre, or summer outdoor theatre. It provides the perfect setting for Halloween Hauntings.
