Heritage Open Days: East Riddlesden Hall, National Trust

  • 12 September 2015

Imagine stepping back 400 years into the home of a 17th century cloth merchant. See the changes that he made and discover why these were sadly never completed. For generations after, the estate was a hive of farming activity producing enough milk, cheese and bread to adequately supply the household and its workers. Saved from demolition in 1933 by two local brothers, the hall was donated to the National Trust in 1934. Today, friendly volunteers bring the house back to life and share the fascinating stories that have made this special place an award-winning attraction.

The romantic gardens are the perfect place to relax and unwind, while active families can enjoy our natural play areas and let off steam in our playground - there's even a Hobbit House to hide away in when things get too much and a mud pie kitchen for budding chefs.
