Historic Euxton Hall

Euxton Hall was built by the Anderton family in about the fifteen century. It was later rebuilt in 1769 and then again finally in 1850, giving the present Hall.  There was also a private chapel in the grounds which was built in about 1817, the building still remains.

The Hall is now a private hospital, the last ‘gentry’ to live at the Hall, was Colonel Bell, late 1950’s into the 1960’s.

Prior to and during this period, the grounds of the original hall, were very extensive, well planted with lakes and numerous wells, but then unfortunately subdivided for housing. The original grounds had many interesting features including a pheasant wood, ornamental lakes and a great deal of planting of Rhododendrons, not a British native shrub, but in its time a very popular English planting.

The grounds of the Hall were protected to the South and East, by the high sandstone wall still to be seen. These two sides being the exposure of the then Hall to the Village of Euxton, on Dawbers Lane and Wigan Road.

Apart from the original four main access gates, all originally protected by gate houses, there was one small access doorway into the domesticated areas of the grounds. This doorway is now blocked off.  It is reputed to have allowed the Anderton's guests staying at Balshaw Villa opposite, access to the grounds, in fact it was a service entrance for the more domesticated issues of life at the Hall.

It is reputed that Charles II slept in Euxton Hall, on his way South on the 14th August 1651.  It is said that the King drank water from a nearby brook describing it as "Cul Beck" or cool brook.  This giving its present known name, used mainly downstream towards Culbeck to the West, as it is called Chapel Brook, just North of the Hall.
