Burton Manor College closed on 31st March 2011.
Since 1948 Burton Manor College was a centre for short day or residential courses.
The Manor has been offered for sale by Liverpool City Council for many years. A local developer is interested in converting the main building to offices, demolishing newer buildings and building apartments. A planning application made in April 2018 can be seen here: Change of use of Burton Manor to offices, construction of 17 new dwellings, demolition of accommodation block, community cafe/shop and associated landscaping works. – Burton Manor College The Village Burton Neston CH64 5SJ
Burton Manor features an historic garden designed by the famous landscape designer Thomas Mawson in 1906. Today this is still as he intended, with geometric gardens on the east, south and north of the house.
The east garden, through an ornamental stone gateway, is a sunken parterre overhung with mature trees. By contrast, the north garden is an elegant enclosure raised above the forecourt.
From the terrace you look across the south garden, with yew hedges surrounding formal compartments on either side of a lily pond, to the fields beyond.
The Glasshouse in the walled Garden. The 120ft long Edwardian Glasshouse has been assembled on the restored brick base. The Ice House. A path has been created and viewing access has been worked on. The gardens were opened in May 2012.
