Oakwood Hall, Bingley, West Yorkshire

Oakwood Hall, Bingley, West Yorkshire is a 19th-century mansion with substantial interior fittings by the Victorian architect William Burges. The hall was constructed in 1864 by Knowles and Wilcox of Bradford for Thomas Garnett, a prosperous textile merchant. The style is "conventionally dour Gothic"[1]

Garnett had the interiors designed by Burges, who contributed a fireplace, and by William Morris and Co, for whom Edward Burne-Jones created the stained glass St.George in the staircase window,[2] whilst Morris himself has been credited with the surrounding images of The Four Seasons.

The Hall is a Grade II Listed Building as at 6 November 1973[3] and is now a hotel.
