Buglawton Hall is a former country house, later a school, standing to the northeast of Buglawton, a suburb of Congleton, Cheshire, England. It dates from the 16th century, with later additions and alterations. In the 19th century its exterior was stoccoed and castellated. Later in the century a billiard room and a service wing were added. The house is constructed in brick on a stone plinth, with a half-timbered core.[1] The hall, together with outbuildings to the east, is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building.[2] As of 2011 the building is owned by Manchester City Council, and used as a "residential school for boys with social and emotional difficulties".[3] The council's predecessor, Manchester Corporation, replaced a "good medieval timber roof" in the stable block with a steel roof.[1]
