Welcome to our website, hope you enjoy your visit.

Yipee!!! our 'Old lady' has been officially handed over to the contractors who will be carrying out the rewiring work.
They seem like nice people, hope they will be gentle with her.
Unfortunately it's looking like our February open days will need to be cancelled as well as the January one, we will keep you up to date with progress.

There will be no rest for us though as we have to pack everything up and shift it out so that the work can take place and then we will have to wash everything, clean, decorate, sand floors and restore order once the contracors move out.

If anyone has a few hours spare in the New Year and would like to help out we would love to hear from you.  Either private message Clayton Hall on Facebook or email info@claytonhall.org.

Welcome to the Friends of Clayton Park website

Clayton Park is situated on Ashton New Road, Clayton, Manchester, M11 4RU.
It is a well used and much loved small park, offering a quiet area, a multi sports court, a childrens play area, a very active bowling club
and the historic Clayton Hall.

Clayton Hall is a Grade 2* listed building situated  in the centre of Clayton Park.

If you would like to volunteer your time to help out at Clayton Hall or in the garden, please contact us by emailing info@friendsofclaytonpark.org.uk



The Friends of Clayton Park formed on the 29th July 2004. We are a small group of volunteers who work tirelessly to keep Clayton Park and Hall in good condition. 
In 2009 the group bid for and won CASH grant funding which allowed us to dress the kitchen, dining room, cold store room and wash house in Clayton Hall to represent a Victorian home.
The following year we managed to secure a little more funding and added a bedroom.
We open the Hall to the public between 11am and 4 pm on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
Clayton Hall provides a hands on experience of a Victorian home for all ages and is an excellent educational resource for local schools.
We also turned our attention to Clayton Hall garden and have carried out major planting and landscaping with the help of local volunteers. 

We meet bi-monthly at Clayton Hall. 
If you would like to join our group or offer your time to help at Clayton Park and Clayton Hall, please email us at info@friendsofclaytonpark.org.uk or come along to our next meeting or open day.

We would love to hear from you.
