The mansion more recent use has been as a special school owned by Lancashire County Council. In the main hall a beautiful oak staircase was demolished in order to facilitate the playing of indoor football. In the early 1980's the mansion and the estate had been acquired by a group of London businessmen. They wanted to make a 50 room "first class" hotel. In recent years (1986 - 2002) Stone Cross Mansion was the head office of local company Marl International. Marl spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on the building, slowly restoring it and also bringing historic items back to the house.
In 2004 the building was put to fire and decimated by vandals. At the present moment there is a big dispute about its ownership and also if when sold what Its Future Use Will Be.

Vast cellars that go on forever and hundreds of rooms to explore, amazing place that has been stripped out by pikeys and is suffering big time with dry rot.

I have re-sized the photos i hope it works now....
