Support our work
Did you know that we need to sell 30 scones to pay for four hours of intricate repair work to a 400 year-old wall hanging at East Riddlesden Hall? Every purchase made in the tea-room supports our work here, so whilst you’re catching up with friends over a coffee you’re also helping to keep centuries of history alive for generations to come.
Knit and knatter
The knit and knatter group meet every Wednesday morning in the tea-room at 9.30am. The group welcomes anyone with an interest in knitting or crocheting.

This is a regular free event and refreshments, including Danish pastries, toast and tea-cakes, will be available to buy.
