Rainhill Hall Farmhouse, Rainhill - St Helens

The former Great Hall, now derelict, dates to the mid C14 and has a five bay curved and quatrefoil braced roof. Significant parts of the building have collapsed or are roofless and at the point of further collapse. The early C19 south west two storey wing of five bays is one of the roofless sections. All the Hall complex buildings are capable of beneficial use and could be isolated from the main farmyard activities.
