Rothwell Castle

Rothwell Castle was a timber castle or fortified manor house, which was built by Ilbert de Lacy in the 11th century. The manor, given its close proximity to Pontefract Castle, would have only been a satellite but would have been important as an administrative centre. The remains of the site are now a scheduled monument. 11th century 1976 Manor house Scheduled Monument Rothwell

The Nookin The_Nookin,_Oulton._Leeds._West_Yorkshire.JPG The Nookin is a Grade II* listed building in Oulton that dates to the 16th Century, which architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner called the best piece of timber architecture in the district. While the date on the front beam is the 10th April 1611, this is likely the date of its renovation by Edward Tailor, and carbon dating has shown that this beam is upwards of 1000 years old. 16th century 1611-04-10 House Listed Oulton
Pyemont House Pymont House & Pymont Cottage.JPG Pyemont House (also spelt as 'Pymont House' and known as 'Pyemont House and Cottage') is a listed farmhouse in Lofthouse. While the brickwork suggests the house was built in the 17th century, the timber-framing suggests that part of the building is from the 16th century. The house is named after the Pyemont family, who inherited the house in the late 17th century. 16th century Farmhouse Listed Lofthouse

While the rainwater heads date the building at 1735, the hall incorporated a late-medieval timber framed wing. Once boasting "exceptionally fine decoration", it now stands derelict. 18th century 1735 Country House Listed Thorpe-on-the-Hill

The North-East Region Emergency Grid Control Centre was a concrete bunker that housed emergency controls for the North-East region's electricity grid. It was built in 1953, presumably by the British Electricity Authority (BEA), as one of eight such emergency controls in similarly remote areas to provide alternative controls for the electrical grid in case of attack or disruption to the main control centres. 20th century 1953 Bunker Robin Hood
