Nappa Hall, Askrigg, Richmondshire - Yorkshire Dales (NP)

A fortified manor house built in 1459 for James Metcalf. A wing was added in C17. Most of the medieval portion has not been occupied for some years. The roof of the west tower has leaked and the floor is in a rotten and dangerous state. The roof coverings over the great hall and the south east wing are in poor condition, although the owner has carried out urgent works. Proposals for the repair and reuse of the hall have received Listed Building Consent and work is likely to start in late 2018.
