Ordsall Hall is a former stately home in Salford, Greater Manchester, England. The oldest parts of the former Tudor mansion date back to the 15th century but there has been a building in location for at least 750 years. The Radclyffe family bought Ordsall Hall in the 14th century.
The Hall was originally built around a quadrangle and two wings of the building remain today; the south rand west ranges. The oldest rooms in the hall are the Great Hall and Star Chamber (named after the lead stars on the ceiling).
Margaret Radclyffe died of a broken heart in 1599 after her twin brother, Alexander, died at see. She is believed to appear now as a White Lady in the Star Chamber and Great Hall.
