Lovely photo Ron. This is timeless, lots of visits to the "Hall", flirting with the girls on a Sunday afternoon, lying in the shade of those trees on a hot day,
great times so long ago.

Nice photo of a very classic building. Does it get used for functions these days & is it all in as good repair as it looks to be?
Must be a real asset to the community. I never went there as a child, perhaps it was still lived in but I've been by the main gates more times than I can remember

YES.

This is a rare pick, no parked cars ,no people ,and a decent sky. A unique combination.

Many Wigganers have good childhood or more recent memories of Haigh Hall, I remember the tractor rides, feeding the fish in the ornamental pond, simple pleasures, great times!

No Helen, parts of it are in disrepair, especially the top floor. There has been talk of it being sold and used maybe as a hotel i think.

Oh, I hope not, Roy! Such precious childhood memories of this place.
