Kirkheaton Manor House

  • Description

    "This house incorporates a 16th century bastle and has later additions dating to the 17th, 18th and 20th centuries. It was probably built for Cuthbert Heron of Kirkheaton at the end of the 16th century and was lived in until 1900. For the next 30 years it lay empty and became derelict, but was restored by 1931. The north wall and end walls of the main part of the building have walls about 1m wide and are probably the remains of the original defensible building or bastle. There may also have been a turret or possibly a full size tower. In the 17th century the building was altered and many features of this period still survive. An extension was built in the mid-18th century as well as some alterations to the main building. The 20th century restoration heightened many of the rooms in the main building and enlarged the windows. This is a Grade II* Listed Building protected by law. http://www.keystothepast.info/durhamcc/K2P.nsf/K2PDetail?readform&PRN=N10188" Photo by Les Hull, 2011.
