Situated a mile from Bradford city centre in a quiet, leafy garden, Bolling Hall was the seat of two important land-owning families, the Bollings and the Tempests.

Parts of the building date from the medieval period, and every nook and cranny is packed with history. During the Civil War the household supported the Royalist cause, and the house provided a stronghold during the siege of Bradford. Rooms are furnished and decorated to give an accurate taste of life at different periods of the house's history.

Join Malcolm Hanson for The Bradford Civil War Siege Story during 'Heritage Open Days'

Malcolm Hanson studied Bradford’s role in the English Civil Wars after creating over 100 heritage trails for primary schools in West Yorkshire.
