Luckily enough to get to visit this beautiful place, managed to get hold of the care taker John who gave us a tour around the building and let us go off on our own. Lovely bloke!

History,
Woolton Hall is a former country house located in Woolton, a suburb of Liverpool, England. Built in 1704 and extensively renovated in 1772 by the influential architect Robert Adam the building is praised as the finest example of Robert Adam's work in Northern England. Throughout its 300-year history the building has been the residence of a number of notable figures, including the Earl of Sefton and Liverpool shipowner Frederick Richards Leyland.

During the later part of the 20th century the building went through a number of uses eventually becoming a school in the 1950s and later being abandoned with plans for its demolition. A campaign against its destruction was successful and the hall is now a Grade I listed building.

Nope, John said it was all demolished and a new school is there now. The building to the left of the building where the nuns lived was still up though but completely ruined by kids or whoever
