Grange Hall: a straight flight of stairs rises inside the entrance, with living room to left. A C17 stair with remains of splat balusters to the north end of the rear wing; on the first floor a post and panel partition below a massive tie beam; panelled doors with original fittings. Grange Hall Cottage: the front door opens into a large room, formerly divided by a partition along the western ceiling beam.

First floor right: fine early -mid C17 deeply moulded strapwork to the curved plaster ceiling, relief of vine scrolls in the tympanum. Panelled doors with original fittings. History: Kildwick was a grange of Bolton Abbey by the C14 when building work was in progress on the bridge and the church (q.v.) The grange farm was the principal manorial settlement and at the Dissolution (1539) it was divided between 2 speculators, Robert Wilkinson of Bradford and Thomas Drake of Halifax. In the mid C16 Drake sold his share to John Garforth of Farnhill and shortly afterwards it became the property of Henry Currer. It is likely that Robert Wilkinson passed his share, with Grange Hall, to the Coates family c1573. Deeds record the construction of the house by John Coates. Roger Coates, a staunch puritan persecuted at the Restoration, died in 1660 and was recorded 'of Kildwick Grange', on his tombstone. The inventory of another John Coates (1708) survives, and it appears to include all the existing building, with rear wings. The C18 history is linked with the Netherwood family, the corner fireplaces and end stacks are of this date. C19 alterations include the south front gables and refenestration together with the division of the property into 2 dwellings. Bradford Metropolitan Council, Kildwick Grange Conservation Area, 1975.
