The Old Hall at Tatton Park

The Old Hall

Tatton Park Old Hall brief history

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