Cheadle Hulme - History

Savage Hall

Brookside Farm

Brookside Farm on the bend in Cheadle Road on the Cheadle side of School's Hill is thought to be where the Savage family (Lords of the Manor of Cheadle Hulme) resided for over 250 years (c1390-1643). The central part of the building below may be the original manor house (Fletcher Moss, 1894).

It was sold to William Fowden in 1762 and formed part of Brookside farm. The farm was encroached upon by housing, Mornington Crescent and so on, around 1914 and eventually ceased to operate in the 1920s. Nothing remains of this important site now (1999).
