Branthwaite Hall.

  • Description

    "A very nice if big house. A late 14th or early 15th century pele tower with a 16th century hall wing; there are also 17th century additions. In 1985 the building was restored and converted into offices by the National Coal Board; it was sold privately in 1992. The tower measures 9.8m x 8.2m over walls 1.5m thick and is well preserved with a vaulted basement." Photo by John Holmes, 2005.
