Elslack Hall

Hob Uid: 46267
Location :
North Yorkshire
Craven
Elslack
Grid Ref : SD9284049230
Summary : Manor house with later alterations and additions, some visible remains of the original building, surrounded by a moat. Probably 16th century in date, with 18th century alterations, refaced in the late 19/early 20th century. Now a small stone-built house with a cross wing to the right. A short length of garden wall attached to this cross wing contains two bee boles. This may be the site for which a licence to crenellate was granted in 1318.
More information : SD 9284 4923. Elslack Hall [GT]. (1)

The Manor Hall of Elslack seems to have been rebuilt about the reign of Henry VIII. 12 Edward II [1319]. Godfrey de Altaripa had licence to embattle his house at Elslacke and a few lancet windows may possibly be of that period. There are the remains of a moat.

There are two stones on different parts of the building inscribed RB 1672, doubtless meant to commemorate the restoration of the hall by Robert Benson. (2-4)

The published name was confirmed (d). Elslack Hall is a two storey building much modernised but still retaining many of its 18th century features. The lancet windows mentioned by authority 1 are still to be seen but no trace remains of the two stones dated 1672. GP AO 60 257 3 and 4 Elslack Hall from the NE and SE.
A 25" survey has been made of the moat. (5)

A 25" survey of moat (12-AUG-1960) checked and still correct. Elslack Hall, correctly described above, is of little architectural interest. (7)
