The Historic seat of the Gillow family

We are delighted to welcome you to Leighton Hall, which has been a much loved family home and the centre of an agricultural estate since mediaeval times. Come and discover the history of the hall and how it has changed in appearance and size over almost 800 years.

The family lives here all the year round and we look forward to sharing it with you.
