Situated in the park’s 900 acres, the Grade II listed Woodfold Hall was at one time arguably the grandest private home in East Lancashire.
It was originally built in 1798 by Henry Sudell, a wealthy cotton manufacturer and one of the most influential merchants in booming Blackburn in the 1790s, and then became home to members of the Thwaites’ family until 1946.
Buildings on the estate include the former manor house, coach house, orangery, walled gardens, farm buildings, deer house and cottages.
Cassidy + Ashton was appointed to provide planning and architectural consultancy to the derelict buildings and transform into an unique private estate development.
Historic research and old photographs were used to document and help to define the reinstatement works, including for the large roof light, central entrance staircase and balustrade, orangery glazing and various other areas of the main house.
