More Information About Shibden Hall

Shibden Hall is set in 37 hectares of parkland. It is a six hundred year old medieval timber framed manor house. It was built in 1420, five years after the battle of Agincourt. There is normally a charge to visit the house, but you are welcome to look around at your own leisure, when you come on the course.

Students on the two day course finish at 2 pm on the first Saturday, so this is an ideal opportunity to go on and view the house. There is also a café where you can get lunch.

We run the workshops in the workmans’ cottages at the back of the building and we set up and fire the kiln in the stable yard, which is close by.

The recently restored gardens and the parkland are also well worth visiting. When we were at the last craft fair the rose trees were flowering, in November. The seasons have been very confused this year.
