Ordsall Hall

Ordsall Hall Ordsall Hall is a magnificent half timbered Hall in Salford, recently reopened to the public after a 2 year restoration.
(188)

Ordsall Hall is a historic house museum and garden, wedding and meeting venue dating back over 820 years. We are near to Salford Quays and Manchester City Centre and are open to visit from Monday - Thursday and Sunday afternoons. Throughout history the Hall has been put to many uses - a family home, working men's club and church hall. The most important period of its life is undoubtedly as the family seat of the Radclyffe family who resided here for over 300 of those years. We re-opened in 2011 after a 2 year conservation and restoration project. We look forward to welcoming you!

Ordsall Hall had an important part to play in the Home Front- turning its lawns into allotments to provide enough food for people back at home. In 2015, Ordsall Hall recreated a WW1 Allotment, which is still used today to grow Heritage Fruit and Veg. This week we are putting the allotment to bed for the winter and remembering all the efforts of the war time Home Front - Painting Oil on Canvas, 'Home Guard' Thomas Dugdale RA on display at Ordsall Hall
