Stables at Dunham Massey
The stables at Dunham Massey date from 1721 and have had later additions, for example to accommodate carriages.
Dunham Massey Hall and Park
Dunham Massey Hall and garden are immediately west of the village of Dunham Town, with the deer park, the only medieval park in Trafford to survive to the present day, lying to the south of the hall.

The present hall was initially built in 1616, but was later remodelled for George, Earl of Stamford and Warrington between 1732 and 1740; it was also altered towards the end of the eighteenth century and in the early twentieth century. During the First World War, the hall was used as a military hospital.

The hall and grounds were donated to the National Trust by the last Earl of Stamford, in 1976 They are open to the public and are amongst Britainís leading visitor attractions, with almost 200000 people visiting in 2010 (LinkExternal link ). The hall itself, the stables, and the carriage house of Dunham Massey are all Grade I listed buildings
