Full Description

Hardwick Manor House was built approximately 1926-1928 by Mr Hewitt from building materials from the auction of Hardwick House (HWK 001) 1926. Built within the old brick-walled garden of Hardwick House (see OS 1880s map), facing W, built on foundations of a cottage which proved to have extensive domed cellars beneath. Farrer suggests these belonged to old Abbey Grange, in the days when the land belonged to Cellarist of Bury Abbey (S1). See also (R1).
