Calverley Old Hall

Calverley Old Hall dates to medieval times and is of great historical importance. Landmark came on the scene in 1981, when it was in danger of being sold in three separate lots. Even the great hall had long been divided into cottages. Then funded by our founder Sir John Smith’s Manifold Trust, Landmark bought this important medieval house so that it could remain in single ownership. As Calverley Old Hall is such a large grouping in several units, its restoration had to be carried out in several phases. We have recovered the gracious proportions of 17th-century rooms, with fine moulded beams and flagstone floors, and enjoyed by visitors since 1983. The Chapel has also been repaired, as has the fine hammerbeam roof of the Great Hall. The Solar and the Great Hall still contain the remains of eighteenth-century dwellings.
