History of Ordsall Hall
Ordsall Hall was home to the Radclyffe family for over 300 years. They first took ownership of the land and previous dwelling around 1335. The current building was built during the 15th Century to replace the original hall by order of Sir Alexander Radclyffe (High Sherriff of Lancaster). Ordsall Hall had further alterations and additions in the 17th Century, which included a brick house on the west side of the hall. In 1666, Ordsall Hall was the largest house in Salford and left the Radclyffe family in 1704. The Hall remained in occupation until 1871 when it then became a Working Men’s Club up until 1883 when purchased by Earl Egerton of Tatton who went on to use the hall to establish a clergy training school after he restored the hall in 1896 (adding a church in the north forecourt and a new servants wing on the south side which were both demolished in the 1960’s). During WWII it was used as a radio station and by 1972 opened to the public as a period house and local museum of History.
Haunted Ordsall Hall
Your overnight ghost hunt at Ordsall Hall will see you heading off in small groups in all directions using an array of different techniques in order to establish who still haunts here. It is believed the building is mostly haunted by Margaret Radclyffe who has been seen on many occasions in the Great Hall and Star Chamber. So much so that ghost cams have been set up in the most haunted rooms of this old Mansion. What will you experience overnight in one of Manchester’s oldest and most haunted buildings?!
