An idyllic location near the Lake District
Situated within walking distance of the bustling market town of Ulverston, and approached by a beautiful tree-lined drive, Stone Cross Mansion is a Grade II listed building built in limestone to a Gothic/Scottish Baronial style as the family home of local mining businessman Myles Kennedy and his wife Margaret Rowley.
Dating back to 1874, the property stayed within the same Kennedy family until 1943 when it was requisitioned by the military, and in 1946 was sold to Lancashire County Council, who until the 1980s used the mansion as a boarding school. More recently it was occupied by a local company until 2001. Since then it has been left just waiting for somebody to give it a full refurbishment and bring it into the modern world.
