Howley Hall (Morley)
Black & White imageUndated, An 1890 photograph of a man with two children standing in front of the ruins of Howley Hall between Morley and Batley. Built in 1590 by Sir John Saville the first Alderman of Leeds and later Baron of Pontefract, the hall was greatly extended by his son Sir Thomas Saville, the fist Earl of Sussex. The hall housed several generations of the illegitimate branch of the Saville Family and is locally known to have mortar created from strong ale to build great walls. However in 1730 the hall's owner, the Earl of Cardigan found the hall 'surplus to requirements'. He sold off the interior and destroyed the hall with gunpowder. Stones removed were used for local building in Morley, Birstal and Batley.
