Guided Tour | Wardley Hall

There has been a dwelling on this site since 1300 and the present Hall dates from 1500 with 19th Century restoration. Part of the original moat can still be seen today. The Hall is now the residence of The Bishop of Salford, since 1930. It is thought by expert historians relying on forensic tests that the skull which was discovered when a wall from the original chapel was demolished is that of St. Ambrose Barlow, 4th son of Sir Alexander Barlow of Didsbury.
Fr. Steven Parkinson will conduct us round The Hall. We shall meet for tea/coffee at 10.15 where Fr. Steven will outline the history of this Grade 1 listed building, followed by the tour. We are grateful to The Bishop of Salford for the opportunity to visit this private historic building.
This events is organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
