Tunshill House, Tunshill
Tunshill House, Tunshill
Tunshill House is a private residential property, and the centrepiece of the hamlet of Tunshill - itself an outlying area of Milnrow in Greater Manchester, England.

Tunshill House was originally constructed as a public house known as The Kings Arms. This pub served this hamlet during the late-19th and early-20th centuries when Tunshill had a small coal mining industry. As the mines closed, and the nearby M62 motorway was constructed, the pub closed and fell in to disrepair.

This building is also notable for being the one-time home of John Milne (1850–1913), a pioneering seismologist.

In this reincarnated version of the building, the new family home has the Royal Arms of the United Kingdom (i.e. the King's arms) built in to the front façade.
