HISTORY The historic Buckshaw Hall Estate underwent a significant transformation throughout its storied past. Originally acquired by Major Edward Robinson, a staunch Roundhead and loyal supporter of Oliver Cromwell during the Civil Wars, the estate is believed to have hosted Cromwell himself, who famously declined the offer of kingship in 1657, reaffirming his stance against monarchy. The Anderton family, whose lineage in Euxton dates back to 1489, initially owned the estate before Major Robinson's acquisition.

Major Robinson completed the construction of Buckshaw Hall in 1654, a milestone commemorated by a plaque adorning the front of the Hall. Subsequent owners left their marks on the estate's history, including Colonel Richard Crosse, who undertook extensive restoration work on the southern wing in 1885, marked by another commemorative plaque.

In 1923, Richard Stock became the new proprietor of Buckshaw Hall. However, the estate faced a turning point in 1936 when the Ministry of Supply issued a compulsory purchase order against Stock, transforming the estate into the ROF Chorley, an ammunition factory notable for producing the famed Dam Busters Bouncing bomb.

In 2018, the current owner acquired the dilapidated hall, embarking on a six-year journey of devoted restoration to breathe new life into the magnificent estate, preserving its historical grandeur for future generations to enjoy.
