About

A view of the hidden parts around the inner sections around the city centre of Manchester UK and beyond. How you perceive these derelict sites could be a sort of morbid fascination, or logically analysing the modes and functionally of the remaining fragments of architecture. This blog is the stage 1 of 'Urban Exploration' but I have to emphasise, if you visit these places and tempted to gain access..I wouldnt advise it unless you seek permission from the appropriate authorities.

Tonge Hall Middleton


Covered with a scaffolding roof, this 16th Century Tudor mansion in Middleton has suffered from years of neglect.

Despite being ravaged by a devastating fire in 2007, the hall still retains many of its original features, including carved oak beams, inglenook fireplaces, timber panelling and a spiral staircase.

Regarded as one of the finest examples of Tudor architecture in the country, it was bought by Rochdale council in 2010 in the hope of returning the hall to its former glory.
