The Old Manor House (SE152260 but frontage in SE1525) is a fine 'West Riding' Hall, of a type more akin to the Halifax manor houses. The house was built by the Empsall family, yeomen of Wyke for over three centuries. The oldest part to the rear has the centre portion dated 1614 and was erected by E Empsall. In 1694 the house was virtually doubled in size, towards the road, by J A Empsall. This part has decorated finials on the gables. There is a long frontage facing south with wide mullioned windows and a doorway with a four-centred arch, but it is difficult to see due to the high wall and hedge.
