Clean-up at former medieval hall site

The site in West Yorkshire of a former medieval hall and moat is to have modest improvement works ahead of a large bid for Lottery money.
Kirklees Council has decided to act to record and conserve the Grade II listed remains of Thornhill Hall, which date back to the 13th century.
The remains at Dewsbury are at further risk of degradation and the whole site is overgrown, dark and unattractive.
Water levels in the moat are so low as the sluice is leaking and there is rubbish and fallen branches in the moat.
