THE BAGULEY HALL
Constructed in the 14th century for the de Baguley family, Baguley Hall is one of England's oldest surviving timber great halls. The oversized plank construction is believed to be connected to Danish Viking boathouse construction. Gifted to Manchester Corporation and used a council workshop and store between 1927 and 1968 the building was eventually passed into state ownership. The Grade I listed building now remains disused but is maintained by English Heritage. This project aims to help our external partner seek the future possibilities of the Baguley Hall to make it a community centre for the locals. Baguley Hall, an important memory that grows up with almost everyone in this area, needs our help to bring it back to the neighbourhood’s daily life. We are going to propose a café, a museum, or a gallery that could gather everyone together in this amazing historic building, passing it through more and more generations.
