Worsley Hall

Worsley Hall is a historic home near Manchester, England. It may refer to either the Old or the New hall. “Worsley Old Hall” is situated on Walkden Road in Worsley, Greater Manchester, and dates from the late sixteenth or early seventeenth century, though it was remodeled and added to in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It was the seat of the Egerton family. The Hall was the site of the planning and supervision of the Bridgewater Canal, which was commissioned by Francis Egerton, 3rd Duke of Bridgewater, to transport coal between his mines in Worsley and Manchester. The canal was opened in 1761. “Worsley New Hall” was built between 1839 and 1846 near the Bridgewater Canal for Francis Egerton, 1st Earl of Ellesmere. It was an Elizabethan Gothic-style mansion and was visited by Queen Victoria twice.
