Above: Quite a contrast from how it once looked to today’s sorry sight (below). It was used as a Youth Hostel for some years – from the death of Mary Gosselin-Grimshawe in 1930 until it was demolished in 1934. It must have been an ideal spot to explore these glorious surroundings.

This once-magnificent country house, enjoying wonderful views over the picturesque Goyt Valley, is now just a sad pile of stones. It survived for less than 100 years. It was built around 1843, and demolished in 1934. Click on any of the posts below for information relating to the hall. I’ve managed to collect quite a few old photos showing the hall in all its former glory. Click here to view them.
Mary Grimshawe-Gosselin of Errwood Hall died on 23rd February 1930. The auction of the contents of Errwood Hall was held over five days – from June 16th-20th 1930. There were more than 1,800 lots in total.
It seems that rare fragments of Errwood Hall have survived! Some plasterwork copies of the Elgin Marbles were rescued before the hall was demolished in 1934.
A wonderful digital reconstruction of Errwood Hall by the Furness Vale Local History Society. I’d love to do something similar on Goyt’s Bridge – but wouldn’t know where to start!
