View of the front entrance of Kildwick Hall, a 17th-century manor house, situated in the Yorkshire village and parish of Kildwick. It has three stories and is topped by symmetrical gables. The village lies on a hill along the road from Keighley to Skipton. Langdale's Topographical Dictionary of Yorkshire (1822) reports, "the Manor house, a respectable stone building, perhaps a century and a half old, stands high above the church, with a very deep descent in front; but is sheltered by thriving plantations".
