- Upper Batley
Upper Batley is an area of
Batleyin West Yorkshire, England.It was popular with the millowners of Batleyin the 1800s as a place to build their family homes. There are many fine stone built villas in the area. Batley Hall, a two storey, oak and stone building, was originally built in 1370 by William Copley, although the present building dates from 1857. Its gatehouses are now ordinary homes and the Old Hall is now a residential home. The 17th century banqueting hall in the grounds is a grade II* listed building, whose origins may have been a dovecote or a private chapel built as early as 1465 for Lady Elizabeth Copley when rheumatism prevented her from traveling to the parish church in Batleyfor services. Upper Batley is also a conservation area.
