Enlarged timber framed and brick house, originally the seat of the Egerton Family of Tatton. Central core is an early C16 timber framed hall, altered in C17, partly rebuilt in 1797, then enlarged in the early C19. Later extensions. Building suffered a major arson fire in March 2016, with significant damage to the historic timber framed core. Historic England is supporting Manchester City Council in undertaking remedial works.
