Hopwood Hall, Rochdale Road - Rochdale

Former college derived from a country house, dating from C17 and C18, incorporating parts of an early C15 open hall timber frame with further C19 and C20 alterations. Currently vacant with emergency works underway by a combination of the Local Authority and an active local friends group with match funding from Historic England. Discussions are on-going about potential new uses for the Hall to bring it into both commercial and community use.
