The Lower storey of the Entrance and the Cupola were removed and rebuilt in Ravensknowle Park Dalton where they remain to this day

King's Head Yard in Cloth Hall Street & Market Street in Huddersfield where my Great-Great Grandfather James Bray, Cloth Manufacturer of Deighton, Huddersfield,  had a lock-up warehouse
