The Extraordinary Ordsall Hall Development Programme
Ordsall Hall has witnessed many things throughout its long and illustrious 660 year history, but hundreds of years of history inevitably take their toll. Salford City Council and The Friends of Salford Museums submitted an inspirational bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund resulting in an award of £4.13 million. This is fantastic news for the future of the hall. Ordsall Hall has now closed to the public for two years and will reopen at Easter 2011.
What's in the pipeline?
We want to restore and preserve the building itself, while also making sure as much of the hall as possible is open for visitors to see. Ordsall Hall will become the hub of its local community again as it was when the noble Tudor Radclyffe family were in residence.
