Set on the outskirts of Keighley is East Riddlesden Hall a short drive from Moorlodge Country Retreat. Built In the seventeenth century by wealthy clothier James Murgatroyd from Halifax, it is now owned and opened by the National Trust. East Riddlesden Hall has a myriad of interesting things to view, including a vast collection of furniture, textiles and pewter housed in the hall. The great barn on the estate is reputed to be one of the finest in northern England and is now used as a wedding venue. The gardens have been re modelled and now consist of a series of formal gardens which are a tapestry of colour in the summer and a less formal wild flower garden.
East Riddlesden Hall has also been used for a film location on Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights and the Sharpe TV series. Throughout the year the National Trust put on events at the hall so check their website for more information.
