Bramall Hall is a Tudor manor house in Bramhall, within the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport, Greater Manchester. It is a timber-framed building, the oldest parts of which date from the 14th century, with later additions from the 16th and 19th centuries. The house, which functions as a museum, and its 70 acres of landscaped parkland with lakes, woodland, and gardens are open to the public. It was purchased by Thomas Nevill, a local industrialist whose wealth came from calico printing, for his son, Charles who carried out substantial restoration and remodelling, making the interior more comfortable while retaining most of the building's external Tudor as shown above.
