On this day in 1808
To be sold by private contract, the Manor or Lordship of Haworth, in the County of York extending over a very large district of enclosed land, and compromising also Three Thousand Acres of unenclosed Moors and Commons, with the free Rents, Tolls of Fairs and all other the royalties and privileges belonging to the said Manor. Also, the two farms called Cookgate, and Withins Farms, the former situated in Haworth, and containing about 30 acres, and the latter situate in Stanbury, and containing (exclusive of the great enclosure called Fawkes’s Intake,) about 33 acres, and the public house in Haworth, called the Kings-Arms. The buildings upon the Cookgate Farm are particularly good, consisting of a modern built and well finished stone house with a large wool-warehouse, barn, stable &c. All in compleat repair: with the Manor a purchaser will acquire the sole and exclusive right to the soil of the Moors and Commons, and to all Mines and Minerals within the same, and they afford several excellent Stone Quarries, and are known also to contain Coal. There are likewise several plots of improvable land upon these wastes, well worth enclosing, and the remainder is Ling and Heath, affording excellent Manor game shooting, being not only good breeding ground itself but adjoining also upon other Moors, which are very extensive and well preserved. The enclosed lands within the Manor afford good partridge shooting and other field diversions, and the property is altogether a desirable object to a Gentleman fond of hunting or shooting.
Haworth is situated upon the Turnpike road from Colne to Halifax at the distance of ten miles from each of these places, nine from Bradford, and four from Keighley.
Other particulars may be had upon application to Mr Smith's office, in Otley.
