    Visited with Telf the explorer formerly know as Telf1980 :D (Partner in crime & Dynamic duo) The most far gone building I've been in - EVERY floor is going or gone!

    Some History

    The hall was built in the 1560s for the Winstanley family. The Winstanleys owned the hall until 1596, when the estate was sold to James Bankes, a London goldsmith and banker, Winstanley Hall has three storeys and has a date stone with a date of 1584, extra blocks were added in the 17th and 18th centuries. Further and extensive alterations were made in 1811-19 by Lewis Wyatt in a Jacobean style. He moved the entrance to the left flank of the hall and replacing the original entrance with a window. The final additions to the hall were made in 1843 when an extra wing was added. A small stone building to the south was used to house bears that provided entertainment for the hall's guests non remain as i could see?.

    The Bankes family retained ownership of the hall until the 21st century when it was sold for private development. The hall had been kept in good condition until the 1960s when habitation stopped. As the building decayed and the cost of maintaining Winstanley Hall was too much for the family so it was sold. It was intended to develop the hall into private flats, however refurbishment was held up due to Wigan council withholding planning permission.

    Enough of the history lesson, lets pik...
