The Georgian mansion house, built in 1825-27 and once home of Manchester's first Lord Mayor, is a Grade II listed building within Buile Hill Park. In 2007, plans were submitted for its conversion to a hotel. (LinkExternal link - Manchester Evening News) but an application for funding from the National Lottery was refused (LinkExternal link Salford On Line) and the house remains currently unused and boarded up.
Buile Hill Park

Buile Hill Park is a Grade II listed Park of National Historic Importance, located within the Claremont and Weaste area of Salford.

Today Buile Hill Park covers an area of approximately 35 hectares. Whilst some of the historic features have been lost over the past century the park itself has survived largely intact.

Buile Hill Park provides an open air venue for many of the city's events, including the annual Bonfire Night firework displays and the Salford Show.
