Jodrell Hall is a country house near Jodrell Bank in the parish of Twemlow, in the county of Cheshire, England.

Contents

Requisitioned during World War II, the building later became a educational establishment, now known as Terra Nova School. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.

History

Built in 1779 as a country house in the Georgian style, in 1885 the Chester architect John Douglas added a south wing and a porch to the mansion for the Egerton Leigh family (also of West Hall, High Legh).

Jodrell Hall became a preparatory school since 1955.

Architecture

The hall is built in red brick with sandstone dressings and a slate roof. Its plan consists of a five-bay central block, and north and south three-bay wings. The central block and the north wing have three storeys; the south block has two storeys and an attic. The middle three bays of the central block project slightly forwards and are surmounted by a pediment with an oculus in its tympanum. The south wing has shaped gables over the middle bay and on the gable end.
