Northbrook House, Slack Beck, Harrogate Road – 2013

The stone house on the right was formerly called Slack Beck Farm, it is believed to have been built Circa 1650 which would make it one of the oldest houses in Rawdon.
It was bought by Mr Kerr in 1976, prior to this it was the property of Leechman Bell and is now owned by the donor of this image.
An attached barn which is not in view is thought to have been used for dances in the 1950s and 60s.

Image Donated by Rob Kerr.
