East Riddlesden Hall,
Yorkshire

There are two barns at East Riddlesden Hall, just outside Keighley, set at right angles to each other. The great barn is an aisled barn with stone walls. The roof is of a much lower pitch than the aisled barns of the south. Like most northern barns it was used for both crops and livestock. The National Trust has kept the cattle byres in the aisles, so you get a good impression of how it would have appeared for most of its working life.

The Airedale Barn is a later construction. It too is an aisled barn. It has been refurbished and converted for use as a wedding venue.
