Save Acklam Hall

  • It is Middlesbrough's only Grade 1 listed building.

 

  • Restore the hall but do not turn it into yet another new build housing estate!

 

  • The land has been sold to developers to build houses on either side, a block of executive flats, a doctor's surgery and a care home at the back. All of which could be accommodated on brown field sites less than 1 mile away.

 

  • It was built in 1680 and, along with the Avenue of Trees and the duck pond, is a green space enjoyed by the people of Middlesbrough for generations.

 

  • Internally the building features a magnificent main staircase with balustrade carved in spirals and helixes; it also houses spectacular plaster worked ceilings.

 

  • The development as it stands will irrevocably alter this unique and historical landmark and desecrate the surrounding area.
