Shrigley Hall in 2008
In 1929 the hall and 260 acres (105 ha) of grounds were purchased by the CatholicSalesian order to become the Salesian Missionary College. Some 2,000 boys were educated there by 1986, when the college closed due to growing running costs, falling vocations and decreasing missionary work. In 1989 the hall was converted into a country club with an 18-hole golf course, leisure centre and a restaurant.
