Bramall Hall is a Tudor manor house in Bramhall. It is a timber-framed building, the oldest parts of which date from the 14th century, with later additions from the 16th and 19th centuries. The house, which functions as a museum, and its 70 acres of parkland with lakes, woodland, and gardens are open to the public and are run by Stockport MBC. (LinkExternal link - Wikipedia)

The Hall, which was described by Nicolas Pevsner as ‘one of the four best surviving timber-framed mansions of England’ LinkExternal link , is a Grade I listed building of special architectural and historic interest.

Although the house and the park are officially known by the name "Bramall", there remains confusion over spelling, most often with the house being referred to as "Bramhall", the name of the village in which Bramall Hall is situated.
