5. Restoring the Hall

Bramall Hall’s restoration is now complete thanks to a £1.6million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Visitors can now enjoy the Hall again. They can see the dramatic improvements that have been made to the historic rooms, architecture and fabric of the building.

The impressive plaster ceiling in the Withdrawing Room has been repaired and re-painted. Objects and items of furniture have been conserved. Hundreds of panes of historic, stained glass that were dirty and broken now sparkle in the sunshine.

The rooms have been brought to life by new interpretation. There is an exciting programme of activities designed to bring the Hall and it’s restoration to life for all ages.

Better facilities for visitors include modern toilets and a platform lift to improve access between levels on the ground floor. New interpretation will tell people about the hall’s fascinating stories through film, virtual tours, interactives and a giant family tree.

Major building development has converted the rundown and under-used stable block into a modern facility for visitors. It now houses a gift-shop, small visitor centre and classroom facilities.

The adjacent new café is a bright and airy space. There is a glass frontage that opens onto the walled garden for outside dining. The Stables Kitchen serve freshly prepared dishes and homemade cakes.
