Heaton Hall (demolished)


The manor of Heaton belonged to the Babington family in the 17th Century.[1] The Ridley family brought the Heaton Estate and Heaton Hall was built in c.1713 by Richard Ridley. His grandson, Sir Matthew White Ridley (1745-1813) made significant alterations to the Hall; William Newton was employed to reface it's front in stone and add it's distinctive corner towers. It stood in substantial grounds and had a stable block and other buildings to the rear of the Hall. The Ridley family remained at Heaton Hall until c.1840.[2] The Hall was demolished c.1930s. The name is commemorated in Heaton Hall Road (probably built after the Hall was demolished). The Hall was located near the north end of that road, in the south-east corner of Heaton Park. Tintern Crescent and Shaftesbury Grove were built on the site of the Hall’s grounds.[3]
