Shuttleworth Hall

Shuttleworth Hall is a 17th-century manor house in the civil parish of Hapton in Lancashire, England. It is protected as a Grade I listed building; the oldest part of the house dates from the early to mid-17th century. An inscription over the outer doorway to the porch contains the date of 1639. Although historians have supposed that the house was a residence of the Shuttleworth family of Gawthorpe Hall in Padiham, Shuttleworth Hall's connection to that branch of the family is unclear. By 1856, the building was described as a farmhouse, it now consists of two separate dwellings. In April 1953, the house was designated a Grade I listed building; the Grade I listing is for buildings "of exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important". The garden wall and arched gateway are separately designated with a Grade II* listing; the house is constructed of coursed rubble sandstone with roofs of stone slate. Its plan is H-shaped and it is built on two stories. Most of the windows have transoms.

A garden to the south of the house is enclosed by a wall with a segmental-arched gateway. Grade I listed buildings in Lancashire Listed buildings in Lancashire Farrer, William.
