Bostock Hall is a country house to the northeast of Winsford, Cheshire, England. A former Georgian house, it was rebuilt in 1775 for Edward Tomkinson.[1] It is thought that the architect was Samuel Wyatt.[1][2] Alterations and additions were made to it in the middle of the 19th century and in 1875. The house is constructed in brick with ashlar dressings; it has a slate roof. It is in three storeys plus a basement.[2] Its plan is L-shaped. The entrance front has a central bow window rising through all floors, and a single-storey porch with a balustraded parapet. The garden front has two bows, between which are a Venetian window with a Diocletian window above.[1] The house is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building.[2]
