Barlow Hall, 1910

Barlow Hall is an ancient manor house and Grade II listed building in Chorlton-cum-Hardy in the suburbs of Manchester, England.[1] A house has existed on the site since at least the 13th century, but the present building dates back no further than the 16th century (rebuilt in 1584), with later additions.[2][3] The house was for a long time the property of the Barlow family, whose estates were sold to the Egertons in 1785.[2] It was the birthplace of Ambrose Barlow, a Roman Catholic priest martyred at Lancaster Castle. Today the house serves as the clubhouse for Chorlton-cum-Hardy Golf Club.[4]
