There is a video of Bidston Court getting dismantled before being moved to Royden Park and being renamed to Hillbark.

The video is on www.itnsource.com, just put Bidston Court in the search.

It is also linked through on Blinkx but seems to come up in lower quality.

I haven't found a way of linking to itnsource pages and note that they are flogging the video at 299 a copy!!!

Bidston Court is now standing in Roydon Park, you cn see it on google maps. I've also been told that is you look around the house you can still see all the numbered chalk marks that were used to re-build it.

Dismantling of Bidston Court
https://www.britishpathe.com/video/...TUDOR-HOUSE-FOR-RELOCATION/query/bidston
The quality is a bit better than the youtube link in this thread and all the other links don't work.

A lot more about Hillbark and Bidston Court here.
