    History
    Woolton Hall liverpool is a former country house built in 1704 and extensively renovated in 1772 by the influential architect Robert Adam. It is praised as the finest example of Robert Adam's work in the north of England.

    The original part of the house was built in 1704 for the Molyneux family,

    on an estate of 400 acres that Richard Molyneux purchased in 1700. The site had had a house on since the Twelfth century, at one time serving as a the local headquarters of the Knights of St. John.

    After the death of Richard Molyneux in 1738 and his widow in 1766, Woolton Hall was acquired by Nicholas Ashton, High Sheriff of Lancashire, whose father was one of the original undertakers and the principal financier of the Sankey Canal, the first canal of the British industrial revolution. In 1772, Robert Adam was employed to design a new frontage and redesign the interior. It remained in the Ashton family until the late Nineteenth century. The hall is a grade I listed building.
    It has also been a school and a hotel at some point.

    Nice report lavino, great to meet you and your son, that caretaker what a real gent he is, he was telling us that he bought the hall in 1980 for 15k and sold it in 2001 to the current owners, it's now on the market for 3 million, hope it's gets rescued

    Great.....as if a permission visit isn't easy enough for you , you want the blokes phone number as well FFS

    what's next on your heavily researched exploration list ? Asking for access details for Camelot I suppose ;)

    Try that new fangled thing called the Internet, I understand that if you actually spend literally seconds pressing a few buttons it'll provide you with information .......Some of even worthwhile . And it may help you in the future, as save asking everyone one else to do the work for you.....just saying ;)
