Welcome to the Friends of Clayton Park website

Clayton Park is situated on Ashton New Road, Clayton, Manchester, M11 4RU.
It is a well used and much loved small park, offering a quiet area, a multi sports court, a childrens play area, a very active bowling club
and the historic Clayton Hall.

Clayton Hall is a Grade 2* listed building situated  in the centre of Clayton Park.

Follow the link for more details.

Clayton Hall is run entirely by volunteers.  If you would like to volunteer your time to help at Clayton Hall or in the garden and park then contact us at info@claytonhall.org and we will get back to you asap.



The Friends of Clayton Park formed on the 29th July 2004. We are a small group of volunteers who work tirelessly to keep Clayton Park and Hall in good condition. 
In 2009 the group bid for and won £6,400 CASH grant funding which allowed us to dress the kitchen, dining room, cold store room and wash house in Clayton Hall to represent a Victorian home and so Clayton Hall living history museum was born.
The following year we managed to secure a little more funding and added a children's bedroom and a drawing room.
In 2017 we carried out refurbishments to the Victorian rooms and added Clayton Hall history and Humphrey Chetham rooms on the upper floor and a tea room/gift shop on  the lower floor of the timber framed section of the building.
We open the Hall to the public between 11am and 4 pm on the first and third Saturdays of each month and organise and run school and group visits, community events and a Memory Lane cafe.
Clayton Hall provides a hands on experience of a Victorian home for all ages and is an excellent educational resource for local schools.
We also turned our attention to Clayton Hall garden and have carried out major planting and landscaping with the help of local volunteers. 
We meet bi-monthly at Clayton Hall.
If you would like to join our group or offer your time to help at Clayton Park and Clayton Hall, please email us at info@friendsofclaytonpark.org.uk or speak to one of the Friends on an open day.

We would love to hear from you.
