Upper Batley, Kirklees

Upper Batley is an area of Batley in West Yorkshire, England. It was popular with the millowners of Batley in the 19th century 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.
