Witherslack Hall[edit]

The school's central building, Witherslack Hall, was built in 1874 by Lancaster architects Paley and Austin and is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.[2] It gave its name to a steam locomotive in the GWR Modified Hall Class, 6990 Witherslack Hall.
