Bramall Hall Receives £1.6m Heritage Lottery Fund
Bramall Hall in Stockport has been awarded a £1.6 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to transform it into a regional heritage attraction. The overall cost of the project is £2 million which also includes funding from Stockport Council who own and manage the Grade I Listed building. The Friends of Bramall Hall and Park have raised money towards the project and will contribute their time.

The funding will be used to restore the nationally important building including repairs to the highly decorative 16th-century Venetian plaster ceiling in the Withdrawing Room. The Victorian Boiler House will be repaired, and the repair and conversion of the stable block will provide Bramall Hall with much improved visitor facilities including better toilets, a relocated shop and café, and a dedicated education space for school parties.

The project will enable the Council to conserve key objects and explain Bramall Hall’s fascinating past to visitors in a more engaging, modern, and interactive way.
