Cad Beeston, The Manor House, Temple Crescent (Beeston)
Colour image8th March 2009. View from the north side of Cad Beeston off Temple Crescent. Cad Beeston Manor House came to light when the then owner Mr. Thomas Scholefield applied for planning permission to redevelop the row of terraced houses known as Cad Beeston. The one in the centre had once numbered 8 Cad Beeston with 7 to the left and 9 to the right. Initial building work revealed timbers that dated from the 14th century and a Building Preservation Order was placed to protect the properties. Research showed that Cad Beeston was actually situated within the ancient township of Holbeck and had once been the home of the Latimer family. According to Mr. D.J.H. Michelmore, a specialist in the restoration of such buildings, the surviving structure was not built earlier than 1350 and not later than 1550. At that time, the area would have been a wild stretch of land inhabited by wolves and wild boar. Further research revealed that Peter de Rome had owned the Manor house in 1425, and was almost certainly the original owner. The Manor House was subsequently made a Grade II listed building, and a program of restoration work began, lasting six years. Work was completed in 1991 and the Manor House was opened to the public for the first time. The Great Hall of the Manor is the only surviving room, and a feature of special interest is a panel of medieval plasterwork with ritual signs scratched on it to protect the occupants from witches. The building is now in use as offices.

Calverley Old Hall, Woodhall Road (Calverley)
Black & White image1905. Image shows Calverley Old Hall, the seat of the Calverley family and a grade I listed building. The Chapel wing on the left dates back to before 1488 (mentioned in the will of this date of William Calverley). The Great Hall, on the right, dates from about 1485. The Solar, centre building, is timber framed, encased in stone in about 1630. Internally, there are many medieval used timbers. The porch over the front door was added in the late 19th Century. The gable of the Chamber Block is visible at the rear of The Solar which was built in 1550. One of the Upper Chambers here is said to be the scene of the notorious 'Calverley Murders' in 1605. A young Walter Calverley killed two of his infant sons and attempted to murder his wife. He refused to commit himself to trial and was executed by being pressed with stones. The truth of Walter Calverley's state of mind and motives have been distorted by the various London Pampheteers of the day and two plays were written and performed. The family moved from Calverley Old Hall when Sir Walter Calverley (1670-1749) built Esholt Hall in 1707. The Calverley residence was eventually split into smaller units. It was acquired by the Landmark Trust in 1981 and has been much altered and restored. Rooms in the north wing have been refurbished as holiday lettings.
