Barrowby Hall

Barrowby Hall is a country house on Barrowby Lane to the West of Garforth which still exists today.

The hall is a grade II listed building originally built in 1677 and remodelled in 1720.

When I was younger it used to be possible to walk or ride a bike along the path in front of the hall towards Austhorpe but these days the road is gated and marked private at both ends so sadly you can't get up close to the building any more.

Sturton Grange

Sturton Grange still exists today by name and is the location of the Makins fruit farm on the top of Garforth Cliff which is now all modern buildings.

As can be seen on some of the old maps there used to be some woods and a moat there so I expect it was quite a nice farm originally.

Manor Farm

Manor Farm was owned by the University of Leeds and was used for dairy and agricultural experiments. It was leased in 1898 and finally closed down in 1928 when it was replaced by Askham Bryan near York, but was not demolished until 1978 [2][3].

Although it would seem an odd subject for a postcard by today's standards for some reason there seem to have been lots available at the time!

Unknown Locations

This is maybe Wakefield Road or Aberford Road? There is a chimney stack visible on the left which could be one of the pits.
