Crosby Hall, Liverpool
The present building was built c.1785 in place of a previous manor house, of which some fragments were retained. Approximately square in plan it is constructed in three stories of sandstone ashlar with a 3-span hipped roof of green slate.
Crosby Hall was the manorial home of the Blundell family, lords of the manor of Little Crosby since medieval times. They were a devoutly Catholic family; Richard Blundell died in Lancaster Gaol in 1590 for his beliefs and his son and daughter-in-law were also imprisoned for several years for the same reason. The family were Royalists during the Civil War, the then Squire being severely injured at the siege of Lancaster Castle, later jailed and made to suffer the confiscation of his property for ten years. 
In 1838 William Blundell was High Sheriff of Lancashire.
The hall is currently home to the Crosby Hall Education Trust (CHET), a registered charity, which was founded in 1988. CHET was opened by HRH The Princess Margaret on 8 May 1991. Its current roll is to offer outdoor activity to various youth groups, besides corporate sidelines such as weddings and conferences.
