Only just come across this forum and it is great to see how many people enjoyed their visit. I Lived for 10 years virtually in the grounds of ordsall hall from 1963 to 1973. Our house was exactly where the entrance is on ordsall lane. I was 6 when we first moved there. It was virtually derelict but it was brilliant for me, my brother and mates to play in the grounds. Always scared of the ghost of the white lady or the caretaker that lived at the front. (ha ha never caught us). Used to watch over our garden wall the student archaeologists (i think) digging a massive trench where the old moat used to be and finding a goblet and other artifacts. I would love to know what happened to these finds. Also there are tunnels (believe me) that run from under the hall to various places.
Hulme church, the Kersal cells, the old docks, (salford quays) etc. A lot of historians say they have never existed but believe me they do. My brother and other people I know have been in them. If they opened these up it would be a fascinating plus to a great building. Also as my parents used to tell me of the secret panels, bolt holes and passages that used to be in ordsall hall. Are they still there. All adds to a fascinating history to a great building in Salford. You would be supprised how many people of Salford or surrounding areas have never been in or know where ordsall hall is. God me, my brother sister and mates could write a book on the experiences we have had as kids in This great place. If you visit Salford, do not forget to visit ordsall hall. You will not be disappointed.
