As part of Medieval Harewood, we are currently excavating the site of Gawthorpe Hall, the medieval manor house which stood here before Harewood House was built.
Gawthorpe Hall is situated to the south of where Harewood House now stands. It was built in the 13th century by the Gascoigne family and was occupied by the same family for 13 generations. In the 16th century Gawthorpe passed to the Wentworth family who sold the estate to Sir John Culter in 1657. Gawthorpe was demolished in 1774 after the new Harewood House was built.
