    Well, seeing that Katies house has now been named I thought that I would post a report, I have held off because The lad who was kind enough to provide the details asked me to wait until it was named already...it has been, so here it is.

    some history shamlessly snaffled from Mr *********** :)

    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.

    I have tried to present my own take on this place, so it may not always portray the usual shots but you ge the gist.

    Outside the Hall itself we met this fking weirdo bellend

    Thanks missus Mayhem :) I believe that the caretaker of woolton Hall is allowing people inside presently to take photos, may be worth a look.
