Slaithwaite Manor House

Seen here, with the tower of St. James's in the background, is the Manor House at Slaithwaite, built by Sir Arthur Kaye, of Woodsome, in the sixteenth century. It subsequently passed to the Earls of Dartmouth, and today is mainly occupied by the offices of the Dartmouth Estate. Part of it is also used as a dwelling-house. The Slaithwaite Local Authority at one time met at the Manor House, and the parents and some of the family of Mr. Haydn Wood, the composer, lived there.
