The tour was very interesting and the Hall is in excellent condition and very old. It was a very good thing to do with a group of visitors from all over the country. We are awaiting the drama 'Gentleman Jack' with interest.

Visited here after seeing it on the "Gay Buildings" programme on ? Channel4. Had never heard of Anne Lister before. Lovely building and gardens. There's a short but steep path from the roadside carpark. Although there is accessibility parking closer to the house.
