Notes: Wythenshawe Hall, in Wythenshawe Park, is a half-timbered Tudor house. The original Hall was built around 1540 by Robert Tatton, possibly on the site of an earlier medieval building. It is now run by Manchester city council and open to the public. The present day formal gardens date from the 1850s, and we are told that they look 'much as they might have done in 1641 when the oldest known estate plans were drawn up'. Whether either of these dates are pointers to the age of some of the trees here is not known.
