This Tuesday: Helping of History On Location at Heaton Hall

Join Hannah this Tuesday, 24th April, at 12noon for another exciting Helping of History here on on North Manchester FM. This week, Hannah will be on location at Heaton Hall.

Heaton Hall, a fine neo-classical building in Heaton Park, North Manchester, was the ancestral home of the Egerton family. Sir Thomas Egerton, the 7th baronet, had the Hall rebuilt in the 1770s with James Wyatt as architect. Sir Thomas, created Lord Grey de Wilton in 1784, and Earl of Wilton in 1801, was succeeded by his grandson, the second earl, in 1814. The Hall and the estate were sold to Manchester City Council in 1902. Heaton Park is the largest municipal park in Europe.

“I’ll be talking to Andrew Walker and David Blood from the Friends of Heaton Hall, who’ll be showing me around the hall and explaining some of its history and architecture” writes Hannah.

“Throughout the show, I’ll be sharing pictures of my visit on my Twitter page, so do follow along. You don’t need a Twitter account to see the pictures, just click on the link to view my timeline”.
