6/155 Castle Close, to rear of
nos 19-23

House or folly. Mid C18 with additions and restoration c1920. Stone slate
roof. 2 storeys, square plan with 2-storey, 2-bay addition to front (east
side). C20 door and windows in this addition, which has a gabled roof with
gable coping and ball finial. Main block has moulded and dentilled eaves
cornice, pyramidal roof with ball finial and rear corner stacks. Right
return: the corner of a banded and corniced facade is just visible between
the C20 addition and Castle Cliffe (q.v.). Rear: C20 addition with lean-to
roof on ground floor, sash with plain lintel to first floor. The 2-storey
range attached to south-east side was possibly a factory or warehouse and is
not of special interest. This tower was probably built as part of Castle
Cliffe (q.v.). The range, together with the factory or warehouse, was part
of Dr Steads Yard in the mid C19. The whole group was restored in 1927 by a
local builder. Kellys Directory of Yorkshire 1851 and 1871.
