The History of the hall can be traced to as far back as the Domesday Survey. With little knowledge of the hall prior to the Norman Conquest, documented history starts around the end of the 13 th century, when the hall was passed to the Earl of Chester, a nephew of William the Conqueror.
Since the year 1315 it has been home to the Legh family. One of the oldest and most historic Cheshire houses it has evolved over 700 years, the east and west wings being demolished in 1928, giving the Hall its present rectangular shape. A true representation of the hall from all angles can be seen in the landscapes by Thomas Bardwell (1704-1767). Throughout these extensions and restorations the Legh family mainly used local craftsmen and materials produced either on the estate or locally.
