Farnley Hall (North Yorkshire)

Farnley Hall is a stately home in Farnley, North Yorkshire, England. It is located near Otley and was built in the 1780s by John Carr, who also designed Harewood House. The hall is now a Grade I listed building.

The property was owned by Walter Fawkes MP [ [http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/nra/searches/pidocs.asp?P=P9772 National Archives] ] (1769-1825), and a regular visitor was the Victorian artist and philosopher John Ruskin, who was taken with the enormous collection of paintings by J.M.W. Turner, a friend of the owner. A selection of Turner's works from the Farnley Hall collection were sold in 1890 for £25,000. [The Washburn by Tom Bradley (published 1895, reprinted 1988)] .
