The Manor House was a delightful small museum in an historic building by the Church. It included relics of Ilkley's Roman and prehistoric past.

Stumbled on this after a meal at a local restaurant. Had a photographic competition that my wife and I were ablr to vote on which was good. The museum itself was an interesting insite into the history of Ilkley.
