Knabbe's Hall, Nabs Lane, Silkstone - Barnsley

Large C17 farmhouse which retains many original features. The existing building probably incorporates elements of an earlier house and was rebuilt for William Wood, an ironmaster at nearby Wortley Forge, and his wife Elizabeth. It is now in need of repair and maintenance to address issues of water ingress and structural movement affecting the historic fabric.
