    Nice little place to visit a bit off a mess but work is currently underway by the British heritage putting a new roof on and various other bits being done just hope it not to late ..
    Winstanley Hall is situated on the
    south-western side of Wigan.It was
    built in 1595.James Banks,a goldsmith
    from London, bought the estate for
    £3100.It has been in the hands of
    the Banks family ever since.This
    family also owns land in Scotland.Coal
    was mined on the Winstanley estate
    from 1507.At the peak of production,6
    pits were in operation.Much of the
    estate is rented out to tenants for
    farming.Captain James Banks,the last
    occupier of the hall,died recently,
    leaving the 80 room house empty.The
    gardens now lie derelict and the house
    is for sale.There is no scope for
    development of the estate,since the
    house is a listed building.
