House & Family History
Stanford Hall is a brick house of the late 18th century. During the Second World War the Co-operative Union headquarters in Manchester were destroyed during air raids. The Cooperative College, as it later became, purchased Stanford Hall for 54,000 in 1945. The College remained at Stanford Hall until 2001, when it sold the Hall and relocated back to Manchester. During its occupation of the Hall, the College extended and altered the house, most notably in the 1930s. In 2001 the Georgian house and 360-acre parkland was purchased by Raynsway Properties Limited, who planned to convert the Hall into 34 residential apartments and construct a new 148-bedroom hotel using the stable clock tower as the entrance, and restore the adjacent lido (pool), and the 1937-built theatre adjoining the Hall. In Mar 2007 the estate was sold for 6.25 million to Mr. Chek Whyte of Chek Whyte Industries (CWI), who had previously restored Colwick Hall, Clifton Hall and Bunny Hall. CWI built a new corporate HQ on the estate (Oak Court Offices) and plans to proceed with the luxury hotel, as well as a retirement village elsewhere on the Estate.
