Bramhall Hall

Bramhall Hall is a black and white timber-framed Tudor period Manor House located a short distance from the centre of Stockport. Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the manor of Bramhall passed to the Norman conquerors and the Massey family from its original Saxon lords. Subsequent owners over the years were the Davenport, De Bromales and Nevill families.

Parts of the house, which is open as a museum, date from the 14th, 16th and 19th centuries. Noteworthy features of Bramhall Hall include the impressive Great Hall, the oak-panelled Lesser Hall, a ballroom and chapel and a Banqueting Hall.
