Abstract

This study is an introduction to the archaeology and history of Newton Hall, Hyde, in Tameside. As a timber-framed cruck building from the late medieval period it is one of the oldest homes in North West England, and was one of the first such buildings to be restored for future generations in the 1960s. This study looks at Newton Hall and its place within the cruck-framed building tradition of the region, providing an overview of the development of the site and its regional importance. 95 cruck buildings are analysed within the Manchester city region, including their status, plan-form and construction details, and the study is illustrated with 122 colour plates and line drawings.
