The barn forms part of Slippery Stones Farm which is set back from Cragg Bottom Road to the west of the villages of Oakworth and Haworth. The larger vibrant town of Keighley lies 6 miles to the east offering a wide range of amenities and services including shops, supermarkets, schools and leisure facilities. Keighley train station offers regular services to Bradford, Leeds and Skipton. The property is surprisingly accessible by road with the A650 Bradford Road and the A629 Halifax & Brighouse Road a short distance to the east and the East Lancashire town of Colne with access to the M65 motorway to the west.
Slippery Stones Farm comprises a traditional stone built farmhouse with substantial adjoining stone barn and a separate detached range of more modern farm buildings. The farm buildings and stone barn now have planning permission for conversion to residential use.
Slippery Stones Barn is part of the original farmstead and adjoins the farmhouse. The barn is full of character and interesting features having been altered over time including the addition of a two storey extension to the elevation over the original barn arch opening.
Full planning permission was granted by Bradford Metropolitan Council for conversion of the stone barn to form a single dwelling. Application No.:20/01384/FUL. Date of Issue: 22 September 2020.
