THE NEW OWNER
Cuerden Hall has been bought by Manchester business man Colin Shenton with the intention of restoring it to its original use as a family home. There will be no commercial activities of any kind.
Colin is 52, married, and has homes in Lytham St Anne’s, Manchester and London. He was born into a well-known farming family with roots in Cheshire and Derbyshire and has lived in Cheshire and Lancashire all his life.
His business interests include farming, apartment buildings, co-working spaces, bars, property investment and hotels. He has a particular interest in restoring heritage buildings and is responsible for the regeneration of more than 15 of them so far, including the Grade II 232 apartment Pullman Court in London SW2, the Grade II former Barclays Bank HQ on Spring Gardens in Manchester and the Grade II 2-10 Booth Street, Manchester, now the King Street Townhouse Hotel. He previously lived at the Grade I listed Gunby Hall in Lincolnshire, now managed by the National Trust.
The restoration and conservation of Cuerden Hall as a private family home is the culmination of 34 years of experience and a love of restoring heritage buildings to the highest standard.
