Lawton Hall Estate is a private, gated residential community located in the south Cheshire countryside. The redevelopment of Lawton Hall was completed in 2004 and the estate is comprised of 34 high quality residencies, these being a mixture of detached, semi detached and mews properties alongside a number of luxury houses and apartments situated in the Hall itself.

This site has been developed with the aim of providing useful information about Lawton Hall Estate to current owners and other residents, potential buyers and anyone else with an interest in the Estate.

Each of the properties on the estate was designed and built to complement the period features of the main hall.

The architects worked closely with English Heritage and Congleton Borough Council to ensure that the development is as sympathetic as possible to the historic buildings within the estate.

Evidence of this approach can be found both around the estate and within each property, for example, around the site the use of block paved roads, wrought iron Cheshire railings and traditional planting add to the character of the estate. Individually each property boasts wooden sash windows, slate roof tiles, high ceilings, elegant coving and deep skirting boards, features not often found in new housing developments.

This attention to detail culminated with the Estate attaining the prestigious Gold prize for the Best Development at the 2004 What House? Awards.

The history of ‘Lauton under Lyme’ as it was referred to prior to the Norman invasion, is a varied and interesting one. The estate’s first recorded Tudor manor house, through its Jacobean successor, up to the ‘fine’ Georgian replacement that stands today, forms a backdrop to over 600 years of the continuous Lawton family line. Their characters, their lives and their actions have culminated in making Church Lawton what it is today!….
