Stories from Salford nu 3 .............. that Hall

Now every blog should have one picture of Ordsall Hall.

It is after all a fine building with a history which goes back to the 15th century on a site where there has been a house since at least 1251.

And since it was bought by Salford Corporation there will be many with fond memories of day visits to the place when it was a museum.

And perhaps a few stories from when it was a working man's club in the 1870s

All of which makes Andy’s picture a nice contrast to the usual mix of brand new Salford buildings and the grimy old ones which I often feature.

Location; Salford

Picture; Ordsall Hall, 2014 from the collection of Andy Robertson
