Stockport Heritage Trust is concerned about the welfare and future use of Woodbank Hall, a Grade II* statutorily listed building, dating from 1814, and designed by Thomas Harrison in the Greek Revival style for Peter Marsland, a leading Stockport industrialist.
The Hall is on Historic England’s Heritage-at-Risk list, and grave concerns were recently raised by both the Victorian Society and SAVE Britain’s Heritage and referred to in local media. Stockport Heritage Trust is currently in the process of nominating Woodbank Hall for the World Monuments Fund’s international Heritage Watch List 2022.
We have gathered together and are sharing on a new website area several resources to help raise awareness of this valuable historic building. Links on the summary page will take you to our statement on the issue, old maps, a transcription of the original deeds and some information on the people mentioned in the deeds.
