booths hallBooths Hall, Booths Park, Chelford Road, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 8QZ

Booths Hall was the seat of the Legh family for more than 600 years until it was sold in 1917.

The original hall, built as a moated timber framed quadrangular house at the beginning of the 14th Century, was rediscovered during an archaeological dig in 1973 and the site lies adjacent to the wood.

In 1745 the current hall was built by Peter Legh. It was subsequently enlarged by his grandson Peter in 1845 to the design of Edward Habershon. The mid-19th Century garden and mid-18th Century planting to the front of the hall still survives.
Booths Hall is surrounded by parkland which is mostly farmed. Many of the parkland trees have survived and a new office and laboratory buildings were added in the 20th Century.

Booths Hall is currently used as serviced offices.

During the guided tour visitors will be able to see the secret passageway that links the cellars to the Oak Room. Originally used by servants, it was never intended to be a ‘secret’ despite its disguised entrance.
