Heritage Open Day: Mossley Hall


This weekend sees the annual Heritage Open Days, where buildings around the country, many of which are not normally accessible to the public, are opened up for visits.

Today's photo shows Philip Wilson telling visitors about the history of Mossley Hall, which was opened for public viewing this year for the first time.

Built in 1864 as a private house for Mossley mill owner George Mayall, it was originally called Whitehall after the farm that had occupied the area. It later became Mossley's Town Hall until local government re-organisation in 1974. It is now known as Mossley Hall and is being restored by its owners.

  1. I visited Hyde Festival Theatre on Friday and yesterday the church of St Thomas the Apostle which is featured on today's post with a link to your June post about Albion church.

  2. Your Heritage Open Days sound absolutely wonderful! If I were there, I'd be visiting as many as I could. I love old houses and buildings.
