It’s a sad day. This fire at Wythenshawe Hall, the venue for our Saturday morning parkruns, and a place with a long history, mentioned amongst many other things in this posting from 2014, has caused terrible damage to the building.
From this angle it didn’t look too bad.
But moving around the cordoned off area, together with a number of concerned local people, the scale of the damage became clear.
I’m sure everyone will join me in hoping that the Hall can be restored. We may need to search our pockets.
