Arden Hall


Arden Hall was built in 1845 by Benjamin Hargreaves the fourth son of Thomas Hargreaves (who lived at Oak Hill Mansion). Benjamin died in 1880 and the hall became the home of a number of notable residents until it was finally demolished in 1948-1949. The footprint of the hall is still visible and was subject to an archaeological dig in 2012 and the report provides further details about the hall and its residents. The gates to the hall still remain in position and now form a welcoming entrance to the area. The old coach house of Arden Hall is now a private residence.
