Kippax Hall
Description:
Undated, Although this postcard photograph is captioned 'Kippax Old Hall', there was, in fact, an earlier hall on the site. According to 'A History of Kippax' by the Kippax and District Historical Society, the first hall was 'either a replacement or (an extension) of the Capital messuage described in the purchase of the manor by William Medhurst' and was L shaped. An illustration of the first Hall can be seen in this book on p.70. It later became a private school before it was demolished to make way for the new Hall. A late Victorian mansion built by William Green and sons for Alderman Breffitt, who was a glass-maker from Castleford. When the building was finished it was divided into separate residences, Wm Green and his family occupying a section. It was eventually demolished and a supermarket built on the site. The United Free Belgrave Chapel is on the left of this old postcard view.
