Ryecroft Hall is a beautiful Grade 2 listed building dating back to 1849, when the Earl of Stamford and Warrington sold the land to the Buckley family, who owned the cotton mills at Ryecroft. James Smith Buckley passed the house on in 1885 to his nephew Abel Buckley, who lived there for twentytwo years. He was a Liberal MP and the Mayor of Ashton, and contributed to the cost of building Albion Church. In 1913 Austin Hopkinson, MP for Mossley, inventor of a coal cutting machine and owner of Delta Engineering Works, acquired the hall.
During the First World War it was a voluntary hospital with over 100 beds. Austin Hopkinson gave the house and grounds to the people of Audenshaw in 1922 for Council Offices and to this day it is used for community purposes.
This venue is well known in this area as being very very haunted and is highly rated by many ghost hunters as an amazing place to investigate including some of our very own team.
