Calverley Old Hall Appeal
Exceptional Grade I-listed medieval manor house in Yorkshire at risk.
A major appeal to revive this exceptional medieval manor house in Yorkshire has almost reached its goal. Many have donated generously to help restore and secure the future of the whole site. This year we made a remarkable discovery: an astonishingly well-preserved scheme of sixteenth-century wall paintings, hidden beneath later lath and plaster. Our fresh appeal hopes to raise a further £94,000 so that this rare and precious Renaissance decoration can be conserved, recorded and displayed as part of this exciting project.
Behind the apparently sound exterior, the decaying glories of 800 years of architecture remain.
An exciting solution is now within reach, which will transform the whole site for new uses, thus securing its future. With your support, we will create a spectacular new Landmark for 10, and a dedicated space for the community. Throughout the restoration, rare craft skills will be passed on to trainees and apprentices.
