Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hinderton Hall is a former country house, standing to the northeast of Neston, Cheshire, England. It was built in 1856 for Christopher Bushell, a Liverpool wine merchant. The architect was Alfred Waterhouse. It was "an exceptionally early work," designed before his first major commission, the Manchester Assize Courts. Extensions to the house were built in the 20th century for Sir Percy Bates, chairman of the Cunard Line. The building has since been used as offices. The house is constructed in coursed rock-faced sandstone, with ashlar quoins and dressings. Its plan is approximately square. The house has tall gables, and steep roofs in patterned slate. At the corner of the entrance front is a thin tower. Internally, the entrance hall contains the staircase, with the reception rooms grouped around it. Waterhouse designed three lodges and a stable block in a similar style.
