Whitley Hall 4

This auction catalogue above dates from 1917 at the time when the Beaumont family cleared the house prior to leaving forever.

Black Dick's Tower

By 1950 the hall had again fallen into disrepair and this time there was to be no reprieve, and it was sold for demolition.
After the hall was demolished the site was open cast mined, removing any remaining traces.
All that remains today is the "Summer House or "Temple" as it was sometimes known.
As you can sec from the pictures the Summer House is now itself deteriorating badly and Mirfield may soon loose one of its familiar landmarks.

Whitley Hall

During the Great War the hall and grounds were used by the army for training.
