(Formerly Listed as:

Barlow Hall)


Also known as: Chorlton-cum-Hardy Golf Club BARLOW HALL ROAD
Barlow Moor.
Manor house, now golf club. C16 and C17 with C18 and C19
additions and alterations; badly damaged by fire in 1879, and
partly reduced in C20; altered, with C20 additions. Mostly
brick, with some surviving timber-framing; slate roofs.
Formerly 4 ranges enclosing a courtyard, but east range
demolished. Two storeys, without regular fenestration. The
principal features of interest now are: the surviving
north-east oriel or bay of the former hall in the west range,
which is timber-framed, jettied and gabled, with a sandstone
plinth, 12-light wooden mullion-and-transom window at ground
floor (with much original glass: see below), jetty bressummer
with mouchette carving, stud-and-rail framing at 1st floor
with 3-light casement window (altered), and bargeboards with
pierced quatrefoils; 2 timber-framed panels at 1st floor of
the south side of the north range, which have short studs,
quatrefoil panelling, and C20 casements; the former entrance
porch on the north side of this range, which is of brick,
2-storeyed, gabled, and has a cambered timber lintel to the
former waggon entry (now blocked, re-using a carved bargeboard
or bressummer as a lower lintel); and at the west end of the
south side of the south range an early C19 single-storey
semi-circular bay which has French windows with margin panes,
flanked by 12-pane sashes. West range has gabled wing at north
end, but is otherwise now entirely covered by C20
single-storey lean-to glazed loggia. Interior: oriel window
with some stained glass shields and one pane lettered "1574";
egg-and-dart frieze to south-west bow window; roof of west
range said to have old timbers. History: was home of Blessed
Ambrose Barlow, born 1585 and martyred at Lancaster 1641.
