Tabley Old Hall, Chester Road, Tabley Inferior - Cheshire East (UA)

Former manor house on a moated island, originally dating to circa 1380, with C16 and C17 alterations. Derelict since abandonment in the 1920s, following partial collapse due to nearby brine pumping. Historic England's Research Team are finalising a research report to enhance understanding of the site. The owner's agents have progressed removal of the most unstable trees near the structure, following agreement from Natural England, to reduce risk of damage to walls from wind-throw or root growth. Discussions are on-going concerning long term management of the wider site.
