Tudor House and Pope's Garden (also known as Bewerley Old Hall)

Tudor House and Pope's Garden (also known as Bewerley Old Hall)
The house, built in the late 16th or early 17th century, was then one of the most significant dwellings in Bewerley. In the 1770s It was bought by the Yorkes from the Inman family and eventually became the home of Bewerley Hall gardeners until the 1920s sale of the Yorkes' estate.
