    AKA Katie's house :rolleyes:

    Visited this little gem a while back with Will Knot. Got to say it's one of the best sites I've been to for a while, We made an early morning entry to be joined shortly afterwards by four lads from Flickr ( not sure who was more shocked them or us at 5am. LOL )

    Some history borrowed from Kwans report..

    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.

    Any idea why it's called Katie's house ?

    Was there once a story behind it or was it just A.N other silly code name
