The Tannery, Settle MYD35673 (c) YDNPA, 2023
The Tannery was built in the late 17th century as a farmhouse and barn. A datestone with 1682 and the initials HIAW on it survives over the entrance. The farmhouse became a tannery around 1792 and the garden contains the remains of slate-lined tanning pits about 1.2 metres square and 1.2 metres deep. The barn was converted in the 19th century to form part of the house. Now a private home.
