This photograph was amongst those taken of old halls and homesteads from across the Parish of Halifax in 1937 by local photographer and antiquarian Hugh Percy Kendall.

The hall is a Grade II Listed Building. The following is from Calderdale Council's Listed Buildings descriptions:

Gabled House. c.1700. Formerly parlour wing to house of 1631 now mostly demolished. Ashlar, with stone slate roof. Two tall storeys separated by string course. North front is gabled of 3 bays with large double chamfered cross windows and a stepped 3-light window in the gable with hoodmould which has inscribed stops. The left hand ground floor window now door. Left hand return wall has other cross windows and a tall splayed stair window and lateral stack with offsets. South front was once identical to north front but now lacks all mullions and transoms and is sashed, all with glazing bars. To the west the remainder of the house is being rebuilt (1982) but is excluded from the item. L. Ambler 'The Old Halls and Manor Houses of Yorkshire' (London 1913), p.76. N.
