Kempnough Hall

Kempnough Hall is a Grade ll listed country house dating from the 15th and 17th Century. The site is located in Worsely within the Roe Green / Beesley Green Conservation Area, and bordered by Worsley Woods.Cartwright and Gross were appointed as a member of the project team to extensively refurbish and restore the hall,
which had fallen into a state of disrepair. The careful choice of materials, high specification, sensitive design and client dedication has ensured Kempnough Hall will remain a heritage landmark in the North West for future generations.

As part of the planning conditions an archaeological study was undertaken prior to commencement. Notable discoveries included:-

  • evidence of a 13th Century settlement boundary
  • hand carved Tudor Rose made from wattle and daub from the time of Henry VI
  • witching post dating from the 16th Century
  • Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were guests of the First Earl of Ellesmere at the hall in 1851
