Buckshaw Hall, Euxton Lane (off), Euxton - Chorley

Timber-framed former manor house dating from early C17 and restored in 1885. Unoccupied since World War II. Structural repairs to the exterior were completed several years ago, but work to the interior ceased and the house remains unoccupied, with detached panelling and mud floors. It was acquired by a new owner in 2017, and discussions took place with Historic England and the Local Authority about a repair scheme and residential development. If taken forward, these plans would see the Hall brought back into sustainable use.
