Crosland Hall, a 'House built in the early 17th century with early 18th century alterations' (PastScape)

To Crosland they came craftily,

Of nought they were afraid.

The hall was water'd well about,

No wight might enter in;

Till that the bridge was well laid out,

They durst not venture lodge;

Before the house they could invade,

In ambush they did lodge;

And watch'd a wench with wiley trade,

Till the let down the bridge.

A siege they set, assault they made

Heinously to the hall (Midgley, p. 59)

Gatehouse Comments

The C17 house probably sits on the site of the C14 Hall of Sir Robert Beaumont which, in a poem describing the Elland Feud, was said to be moated and to have a drawbridge.
