Summary

Hulme Hall is a Grade II* listed hall with medieval origins. It is surrounded by a moat which is crossed by a medieval stone bridge. The site has a long history of occupation at first being the home of the Grosvenor family, passing on to the Shakerleys towards the end of the 15th century.

The present building is now a farmhouse with 15th century origins, 17th and 19th century alterations and additions. It is brown brick with stone slate and a Welsh Slate roof. The later brown brick exterior walls enclose the medieval and 17th century work. The foundations of the earlier H- plan house can be seen in the garden of the present farmhouse. Archaeological investigation in 1974 - revealed a brick floor which ran up to a rubble filled foundation trench which was probably a wall. Pottery from the destruction layers was mostly Staffordshire ware of 1650-1740.

The moat and ground beneath the bridge and the Hall are a Scheduled Monument.
