The Old Hall at Shepley
The old hall at Shepley is one of those unpretentious home-steads of Yorkshire which enshrine much domestic history. Shepley was a manor granted in early Norman times by Earl Warren to a steward who called himself after the place — a spot that had earlier suffered in the laying waste of the North. An old legend speaks of a secret passage which connected the hall with an "abbey." No abbey ever existed at Shepley, although the district was one in which religious orders established in Yorkshire had an interest.
