When the Fleetwood-Hesketh familly moved to Hale Village in 1947, Hale Hall
was almost beyond repair and so they took up residence in the old Parsonage
Housewhich is nowadays known as The Manor House.
This Building overlooks one of the village greens and although the manor is
much smaller than Hale Hall was it has a almost imposing grandure as the
Hall once did have.
The manor was much smaller than what you see today, as around the 18th
century a west faced was added by the Rev. William Langford, his coat of
arms and monogram are over the front enterence.
The imposing front hides two gables of which the south is the smallest and may be 17th century.
This part of the manor house is originally three stories high, an arrangment still in excistance at the
back, but which has been altered at the front and is now two stories of higher rooms.
The north gable end is lager and of a later date than the south and is only two stories high.
Hale Manor House is located on Church road. From the green in front of the manor, looking left you
can see St Mary`s Church, looking right, you can see the Childe Of Hales Cottage, both buildings no
more than 100 meters from Hale Manor House.
It was also the location infront of the Manor, on the
manor green, of where Queen Elizibeth II arrived in
the village for a brief visit.
The area was bustling with villagers, waiting for
the Her Majesty the Queen to arrive.
