Broad Bottom Old Hall, Mytholmroyd, Hebden Royd - Calderdale

A rare and important example of an aisled timber-framed open hall dating to1464 and encased in stone in late-C16. Watertight but vacant for some years and vulnerable to decay without a sustaining use. Old Hall was probably built for the Draper family, who were cloth merchants. The estate is typical of the post-medieval economy of the Calder valley combining small-scale farming with textile production. Tree ring dating and a historical and architectural survey have been completed. A Project Development Grant for Heritage at Risk has been offered and accepted in 2019.
