Bramall Hall (often misspelt as Bramhall Hall)is a Tudor mansion located in Bramhall, within the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport, Greater Manchester, England. It is a timber framed manor house located in the middle of 70 acres (28 ha) of landscaped parkland featuring lakes, woodland walks and gardens. Dating back to Saxon times, the hall has passed through the hands of the families Massey, Davenport, Nevill and Davies. Today it is run by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, and the hall and grounds are open to the public.

The oldest parts of the hall date from the 14th century, and it is constructed of oak timber framing, which was originally infilled by wattle and daub. The building also has motifs from the Victorian era.

There has been a settlement at Bramall since Saxon times. The current Hall is a grade I listed building, and the oldest surviving parts date from the late 14th century, with additions and alterations from the 16th and 19th centuries.

      great comparison like them both as they appeal for different reasons...ancient because of the tales it has to tell...modern because of the graphic lines
