Crackpot Hall and Swaledale
Crackpot Hall and Swaledale
Crackpot Hall was built originally as a hunting lodge for Lord Wharton, and later saw use as mine offices and then as a farm. In the 1930's Ella Pontefract and Marie Hartley wrote of a 'wild' 4 year old child living here by the name of Alice, but Alice and her family must have moved out by around 1951 as the building became unsafe due to mining subsidence.
