About Bank Hall
"One of Lancashire's hidden treasures"
Bank Hall is a Grade 2* listed building and was the Manorial home of the Bannister (Banastre) family whose ancestors came from Normandy with William The Conqueror. The Friends of Bank Hall (formerly Bank Hall Action Group) have worked tirelessly since 1995 to saved the Hall which had become derelict. With the help of Heritage Trust for the North West & Lottery funding, this has now been achieved with the restoration of the Hall being started in July 2017.
Located at Bretherton in Lancashire and hidden away in woodland adjacent to the A59, the Hall was completed in 1608, was remodelled in the 1830's by George Anthony Legh-Keck, the then owner of the Hall and it then became a mixture of Jacobean and Georgian Gothic in style. Unique in Lancashire, this beautiful building had to be saved.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have unfortunately had to CANCEL Snowdrop Sundays this year.
This is because utility services are being brought to the Hall and the private roads to and from the Hall have restricted access. It would be impossible to safely manage traffic at these busy open days.
We know how dissapointed many will be but rest assured this decision has not been taken lightly but with the safety of all in mind.
Join our friendly team of Volunteers on Sunday 22nd March and lend a hand to help with work in the former pleasure grounds of the Hall. Learn new skills and enjoy the fresh air. All help is welcomed.
