Gorse Hall Estate Stables
Gorse Hall Estate Stables
The recently excavated stable block, part of the Gorse Hall Estate in Stalybridge, Greater Manchester.
"Gorse Hall" is the local name for a former estate (and site of two stately homes of the same name) on the border between Stalybridge and Dukinfield, Greater Manchester.
The first Gorse Hall ("Old Gorse Hall") dates back to at least the 1600's, and was demolished during the 1960's.
The New Gorse Hall Mansion was built in 1835 by local mill owner John Leech (grandfather of Beatrix Potter).
After his wife's death, the Mansion was bought by a local builder for his son, George Harry Storrs, who was murdered in mysterious circumstances on November 1st, 1909.

The bricks used to construct the New Mansion were then used to re-front the Banks in Stalybridge town centre.
