Title

Shibden Hall - South Front, distant - HLS06030

Description

Slide 1 - "A front of timber-crost antiquity"

This line from Tennyson's 'Enoch Arden' aptly describes the appearance of the fine old Hall overlooking the pleasant Shibden Dale. Shibden Hall is one of the few structures now remaining erected at a time when timber was extensively used in building the mansions of the rich merchant or wealthy yeoman.

The curious carvings on the old oak, the rough hewn beams and plank ceilings, and the fine old stained-glass windows, have each a peculiar interest.
