Whirley Hall

Whirley Hall is a country house standing to the north of the village of Henbury, Cheshire, England. The house dates from about 1670.[1] Additions and alterations were made during the 18th century and in the 1950s, when the house was restored and wings were added at the sides.[2] The house is constructed in brick with buff sandstone dressings, and has a Kerridge stone-slate roof with stone ridges. It has three storeys and symmetrical five-bay front. Between the storeys, and above the top storey, are brick bands. The lower two storeys contain 20th-century wooden-framed mullioned and transomed windows. In the top storey are two-light casement windows. Above these are two shaped gables, each surmounted by an obelisk finial, and containing an elliptical window. There are single-storey, two-bay extensions on each side of the house.[1] In the roof of the house is a stone inscribed with the date 1599, which is considered to have been removed from an earlier timber-framed house.[2] The house is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building.[1] The gate pier in front of the house is a Grade II listed building.[3]
